Big Words at the Pineapple

If you're in London, don't miss "Big Words at the Pineapple" -- a spoken word gig with Matt Thorne, who will probably be reading from his work-in-progress, and Ewan Morrison, a "Scottish purveyor of erudite filth" according to Arena. I haven't read Morrison yet, but I enjoyed the following quotes: "In the absence of any greater goals, sex is as good a reason as any to get out of bed in the morning and, I guess, an even better reason to get back there at night"; "We're public-sector people cast adrift in a private-sector world; dreamers who can't access how to be happy".

It's on Sunday 18 September at The Pineapple: 51 Leverton Road, London NW5. Doors open at 8pm and admission is free. (Pic: Matt Thorne at 3:AM's Xmas 2003 gig by Andrew Gallix).

Don't miss the next issue of PBHP, with an exclusive extract from Matt Thorne's novel in progress.
