  • Image of Sex & Love & Rock&Roll by Tony Walsh

Standing two metres tall,Tony Walsh is often billed as a “giant” of the UK poetry scene. As Longfella he has a long-legged logo, but it is his remarkable poetry, rather than his notable height, which stands him out from the crowd. His trademark mix of intimacy and controversy, comedy and tragedy has been stunning audiences from grass-roots poetry gigs to international literature festivals since 2004.

Sex & Love & Rock&Roll, his eagerly-awaited first collection, takes us on an extraordinary journey through ordinary lives; proudly flying the flag for the exciting new poetry which is packing out venues and festival tents around the UK.

Make no mistake, these are accessible, musical poems; influenced by the songs which soundtrack our lives; brimming with northern warmth and humour; propelled by passion and compassion as their bassline and their beat.

Sex & Love & Rock&Roll is a book to unite and inspire us. It is all about coming together and changing the world.

‘Fabulous stuff…’ Irvine Welsh

“‘Too much poetry speaks to too few people’, but Tony Walsh’s poetry speaks to the many. In SEX & LOVE & ROCK&ROLL, words leap off the page: urgent and immediate, like his poetry performances. They tell us how it feels when the needle goes in, / when the bass, when the bass, when the bass, when the bass…” Helen Mort

‘Tony Walsh’s poetry picks you up by the scruff of the neck and shakes you until your teeth rattle. Brilliant stuff!’ Felix Dennis – poet, publisher, Oz trial defendant.
