Attila The Stockbroker was one of the first Punk Poets to break though in the late 70s and is still as active as ever today. In this in-depth interview he talks about his life and work starting with his first band who only ever played one gig. In 1980 he signed to Cherry Red Records where his debut album ‘Ranting at the Nation’ was very well received.
He tells many stories including supporting The Jam, John Cooper Clark and John Cale (who got him thrown out of the venue). Attila has always been very political and campaigned with Rock against racism and Red Wedge. He talks about working in East Germany, replacing Donny Osmond at a gig at the Marquee Club and his battle to save his beloved Brighton and Hove Albion FC. You won’t be bored for a second!
