DIY OR DIE – Andy Carrington

Words are cheap and often hollow. But not when it comes to my fellow poet and brother Andy Carrington. Just pure honesty and he says it how it is.

Staccato machine gun lines that hit hard on the ills and real life situations that drown us everyday! From yuppie scum exploiting his home town Bradford (‘Tourists Fuck off’) to the plight of homeless people who are passed and ignored by the same people who pollute the streets with their very existence and selfishness and snobbery (‘Help Are Own’).

The poem ‘No 1 All Over’ is a great hit at boneheads, spitting the true meaning of skinhead and its multi racial history. I could go on but I urge you to read this and then read it again. It’s working class. It’s about us. The daily grind and all the shit that goes with it.

A tongue-in-cheek dig at society that is in real trouble. Get this and find his previous work. Top word spitting from a genuine frontline worker who has seen the horrors first hand over the past 2 years.

If you’re lucky enough to be going to 0161 festival catch him live.

You won’t be disappointed.
