'ARGUMENTS YARD', ATTILA'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY, PUBLISHED BY CHERRY RED BOOKS IN SEPTEMBER 2015
News update - 10 July 2016
In these truly momentous political times I am of course doing even more gigs than usual - the latest batch of gigs includes Rebellion Festival and an appearance at the Edinburgh International Book Festival presenting my autobiography tied in with six shows at the Edinburgh Fringe - first time I've done the Fringe for 20 years. (The shows are for PBH's Free Fringe, which means they are, yes, free - bucket collection afterwards!) Plus loads more, with loads more being planned.
Any suggestions, please get in touch!

Hi everyone. Over 40 gigs are booked for the second half of my 'Arguments Yard' autobiography tour with loads more coming.
As requested North East, South West, Isle of Wight and starting off in Belfast.. Looking forward to finally making it back to Scotland, and to some more band gigs in Germany now that guitarist Dan is feeling better. Here's another book review from the selection - they've all been great, I'm happy to say:
'Arguments Yard' is available from me on the merchandise page for £19 including p&p UK (more overseas) or £25 with my new spoken word CD 'Live at the Greys'. And of course at all the gigs, along with more CDs, books and T-shirts.... Hope to see you somewhere
News Update - 9 January 2016
My massive autobiography tour starts again in Belfast on 24 January, aiming to reach some of the parts which the first 39 gigs didn't! As ever, all gig and festival suggestions welcome - I want to do as many gigs as possible in 2016. The book, my new spoken word CD 'Live at the Greys' and all my previous releases will be available at all gigs, of course. It's huge fun reading from the book - I'm a storyteller as well as a poet and songwriter now and reviews and feedback continue to be excellent. Here are a couple more, there are loads online: http://louderthanwar.com/attila-stockbroker-arguments-yard-book-review/ and http://www.repeatfanzine.co.uk/Reviews/arguments%20yard%20attila.htm
News Update - 22 October 2015
My autobiography 'Arguments Yard' is without doubt getting the best reception of anything I have ever done.
All the reviews and comments I have received have been fantastic, copies are selling like hot cakes on my current tour and it seems to be doing well in the shops and online too: it's in various bestsellers lists at Waterstones and Amazon (though I don't really want to boast about that given the way they treat their staff) Here's the best review so far there have been loads of others you can hunt for online... I've also had a part in an excellent BBC documentary on the history of performance poetry: it's on the BBC listen again service.
