this morning at feature on the punk/beat English poet Paul Lester from his earliest recordings in 1975 to a CD of recent readings released last year. He really came into recognition during the post punk movement in the English Midlands(Birmingham) in 1980 with his group Lester and The Brew. Continuing on from our Sydney post punk excursions in the last two programs Through M Squared. The same vibe and musical vibrancy and inventiveness was happening in the years following punk all over the world: Australia, UK, Europe and America. I spoke to Paul Lester yesterday and his words will be intermingled with his poetry.
