May Day poetry: Credit Crunch Suicide from Anna Chen

Had a lovely gig last night at the Morning Star‘s May Day celebrations in Kilburn, London.

Also playing, singer songwriter Sean Taylor, a wonderful guitarist. Q Magazine called him, “A bluesey devotional intensity that rightly draws comparisons to John Martyn”. And they;’re right.

Khamis and J-Mac were our DJs for the night, while Attila the Stockbroker headlined with his angry punky poetry. Very funny.

I performed my poems. First video up — Credit Crunch Suicide — about our delightful bankers. Thanks to Charles Shaar Murray for camera duties.
