I’m happy to say that our friends – St. Jude’s Infirmary – have a brand new cd out which you can buy here.
This summer St. Jude’s kindly worked with me on a music backed poem called “The Duke and Pines.” The band provided lush, night-gown like melodies behind my words and I think it really worked. They also allowed me to read some poems at their CD launch at the National Portrait Gallery. It was fantastic – allowing me to live out my rock-star fantasies without anyone getting hurt.
Anyway, their new CD is certainly worth finding, buying and keeping on repeat for a while.
Should you want a taste first – you can check out their song “Tacoma Radar” on my latest SPL podcast. There’s also a pretty good interview with the band about music and poetry. Have a listen:
