Rebel Without A Prose: The Writings Of A Working Class Fake (Paperback)
Keiron Higgins is a 'Punk Poet' from the aisle of Halifax, West Yorkshire. Keiron started doing spoken word as a secondary outlet to music production in 2013 after seeing the likes of close friend and fellow punk poet Cayn White over the years, and being spurned on by attending Genevieve Walsh's (one member of the up and coming poet collective, FIRM OF POETS) first spoken word night. In 2015 he released his first chapbook 'KEIRON HIGGINS: PUNK POET AND CUNNING-LINGUIST' and has become the co-host/compere for Genevieve Walsh's Spoken Weird night based in Halifax. In performing he has supported the likes of Attila The Stockbroker, Steve Ignorant's Slice of Life, Evil Blizzard, and ex. Stiff Little Finger member Henry Cluney. The book is a lighthearted and sometimes comical outlook on the everyday life and struggles of living in England, the love of punk rock music, and recommended for anyone who enjoy the works of John Cooper Clarke, Sleaford Mods and Craig Charles.
