Rantin’ Richie

Richie was banged up between 1981-84 but got into poetry whilst in prison and received encouraging letters in the nick from the likes of Attila the Stockbroker and Seething Wells. He designed the front cover of the first issue of Attila’s ranting ‘zine Tirane Thrash.
He gigged round Yorkshire and the north and first gigged in London in 1990. He gigged a few times at Bethnal Green’s Stick of Rock pub, then run by Cock Sparrer‘s Steve Bruce.
He ran a lively poetry night, Electric Circus, from 1995 which was frequently quite rambunctious.
These days he’s back up north.
