Shakespeare In Soho: Jeremy Reed's Remix of the Sonnets
Jeremy Reed is one of Britain’s most outstanding and famously controversial poets, his originality of imagery and cutting edge subject matter distinguishing him from most of his contemporaries. His recent books include the poetry collections Piccadilly Bongo, Sooner Or Later Frank, Voodoo Excess and Red Light Blues, as well as a biography of Lou Reed Waiting For The Man and The Dilly: A Secret History of Piccadilly Rent Boys. He wrote the libretto for Marc Almond’s 2015 album Against Nature, and performs regularly in London and Europe, both solo, and as one half of The Ginger Light, a unique duo combining performed spoken word with electronics.
Jeremy Reed is a legend. What more can you fucking ask? - Pete Doherty
His poetry is powered by the most exotic fuels the imagination has ever devised. - JG Ballard
