Big City Dilemma - Jeremy Reed & The Ginger Light

Big City Dilemma
· The Ginger Light is the musical collaboration between the acclaimed poet and author Jeremy Reed and the musician and producer Itchy Ear. Together they create a performance dynamic unparalleled in British Poetry and an excitement usually only generated by pop. The Ginger Light fuses spoken word, music, sound design and song.
· This is Jeremy Reed’s debut CD release. He has had 50 major literary works published over the past 25 years; more than two dozen books of poetry, 12 novels and volumes of music and literary criticism including tomes on Marc Almond (with whom he is a frequent collaborator), Billie Holiday and Elvis Presley and translations of Cocteau, Montale and Adonis among many others. He has won many prestigious literary prizes like the Somerset Maugham Award and was patronised by the legendary artist Francis Bacon.

§ "The most beautiful, outrageously brilliant poetry in the world” – Bjork

§ "Jeremy Reed is a legend. What more can you fucking ask?’ – Pete Doherty

§ "Jeremy Reed’s talent is almost extraterrestrial in its brilliance. He is Rimbaud reconfigured as the ‘Man Who Fell To Earth’, a visitor from deep space whose time machine was designed by Lautreamount and De Sade and powered by the most exotic fuels the imagination has ever devised”. – J.G. Ballard

§ "Jeremy Reed is the real definition of British poetry now and deserves to be worshipped himself”. – Richard Hell

§ "When Patti Smith meets Rimbaud at Graceland, the result is Jeremy Reed’s Heartbreak Hotel”. – Edmund White

§ "Reed’s poetry is full of rich and careful writing, dense with pleasure in words that pleasure the world and waken us to its lovely surprises”. – Seamus Heaney

§ "British poetry’s glam, spangly, shape-shifting answer to David Bowie” – The Independent

§ "One of the most original virtuoso voices to be heard in the poetry of our time”. – Lawrence Ferlinghetti

§ "The man is light years away from his contemporaries in poetry”. – Andrew Loog Oldham
