On a Break

After a long thought process (it was while I was making tea for four, but it's been on my mind for some time now) I've decided to give this blog a wee rest. I don't know how long for but it may be for some time.


Ladies and Gentleman,

Hammer and Tongue is proud to present The Hammer and Tongue final 2005 - 2006.

Eight top quality poet/performers from around the world have qualified throughout the season. They are:

Penny Ashton
New Zealand vixen aka The Hot Pink Poet, has been flashing her Hot Pink Bits globally since 2002. Her glandular poetry is a blend of Pam Ayres, Playgirl and Playschool, so enjoy.

AF Harrold
The champ. The greatest. The one to beat. A jolly good poet in the tradition of A.F. Harrold, the famous English poet. Current undisputed Hammer and Tongue slam champion.

Mo the Peoples' Nun

Miles Chambers
Bristol-based actor/writer/performer/dub poet. Recently featured in a BBC Radio 4 afternoon play.
