To be fair, I will be returning to listen to the rest of the show..it was just the comparison between that feller's light-weight vocal caparisons and Mr. Wood's Hollow Point that rankled to the point of hitting the off button. It stank.
It's a lovely word, rankle... but I can also say that caparisons are odorous
(Ay thang yew ladeez & gennlemen)
Anyway, whilst I'm in critique mode, that there Catherine O'Flynn - you could slot her work into quite a few programmes on r4 (and that isn't to denigrate her work, merely highlight her easy style), but is this typical of the
?cabaret of the word, featuring the best poetry, new writing and performances...
It was slight - the kind of writing you would have found in Punch magazine.
I've just been reading The Butterfly that stamped to the grand-daughter (her choice)...Ms O'Flynn didn't Kipple. I suppose I have to take her in context - she was in complete contrast to the self-congratulatory screaming poet from the week before. And maybe it's the contrast that's important as well as the content. Like a segue.
Thinking about it, I might suggest to IM that he gets Messrs Wood and Lupton in for a session. they write well, have something to say and, erm, I like them.
