The Antipoet

The Antipoet

A wry blend of anarchocynisism and comic observation.

The Antipoet, Paul Eccentric and Ian Newman, are together the world’s finest exponents of beatrantin’ rhythm ‘n views! Having become rather successful over the past eleven years, they have tirelessly toured the poetry, comedy and music circuits, and have appeared at countless festivals including, Glastonbury, Edinburgh, Bestival, Camp Bestival, Rebellion, Brighton, Larmer Tree, Ledbury, Camden, Wenlock and Lakefest. They have also performed at magazine launches, Christmas light switch-ons, street parties, several libraries and schools, a shop window, a couple of farms, the back of a lorry, on various boats, in the minstrel gallery of the Liverpool Town Hall and at Silverstone for the Grand Prix. They do about 15 festivals a year and if pushed will both say the same thing, when it comes to festivals Larmer Tree is absolutely their favourite!
