Attila The Stockbroker – 35 years a punk poet – documentary and tour

Young film maker Farouq Suleiman has just produced a fantastic 16 minute mini-documentary centred around the remarkable fact that punk poet legend Attila the Stockbroker has managed to earn his living as a poet for the last 35 years 🙂  It features loads of archive footage, but is bang up to date too. You can watch it at

Attila has also finished his new book of poems, which is full of material about recent events near and far, political and personal  – Trump, Brexit, bladder cancer diagnosis – and for all these reason is titled ‘Undaunted!’  Cos he is! He describes it as “My most personal, angry and wide-ranging collection ever”. More info when it’s ready …
