Attila the Stockbroker + Joe Solo + Ian Winter + Swift Nick
40th Anniversary Special
Friday 15th May 2020
Advance tickets £8 Adv on this page (£10 OTD)

Radical-force-of-nature performance poet/musician Attila the Stockbroker celebrates his 40th anniversary earning a living as a poet!  7 books of poetry plus his autobiography ‘Arguments Yard’
with Joe Solo, Ian Winter and special guest Swift Nick.

If I had a pint for every time someone has told me ‘I first saw you at Hull Adelphi in about 1989’ I’d be paralytic for a month! Still my favourite venue of the thousands I’ve played, the Adelphi in Hull is an absolute icon of the DIY alternative scene. A return to my old 80s stomping ground and a reunion with Jacko and Swift Nick! The toilets are cleaner than they were in the 80s….

Support from the brilliant Joe Solo, who supported me in the 90s with his band Lithium Joe, plus Ian Winter and Swift Nick.
Please spread the word. I’d like a bit of a reunion of all those who have seen me there over the years.
