GRAHAM THOMPSON – ALAN’S JARS

Catalogue Number: DD002

WARNING: THIS RELEASE IS SPOKEN WORD, CONTAINS VERY LITTLE MUSIC AND THE ‘F’ WORD FUCK.

National Elf are proud to present Alan’s Jars, a collection of spoken word pieces by Graham Thompson.

Graham is a poet and wordsmith from the Croydon area, he has been writing since last December.He describes his style as ‘ turning on the tape machine and seeing what comes out’. What comes out I’m sure you’ll agree is rather special.

His free flowing stream of conscience style of wordplay invokes a rollercoaster of emotions; vivid portrayals of everyday life will strike a chord in the hardest of hearts, his witty verse and bittersweet reminiscing will bring a smile to the saddest of faces. This is the sound of a man bearing his soul and searching for meaning within the choas of everyday existence. A very bright future awaits him. Enjoy.
