Travel with my Rants

Richie Brown

Richie Brown was born in Elgin in the late 70s but waited over thirty years before troubling the world with his poetry. In the meantime, he devoured the work of such influences as Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine, Ivor Cutler and The Beano in pursuit of a unique poetic punch. Travel with my Rants is his first poetry pamphlet, published by Blue Salt.

"He has an eye for a title, a pun and a clever turn of phrase, whilst his other eye is winking knowingly at you." (Eddie Gibbons)
