Elvis McGonagall and the Resurrectors
Elvis McGonagall and the Resurrectors return to the Square & Compass to launch their debut album - "Gie' It Laldy!" - an unholy marriage of Elvis McGonagall’s radical stand-up poetry and the Dead Plants’ Caledonian punky skiffle beat. More fire and fury than Donald Trump could ever tweet with his tiny hands. Get out your ear trumpets and put on your dancing shoes - it’s the talking rock ’n roll revolution.
Stand-up poet, armchair revolutionary and walking shortbread tin Elvis McGonagall resides at The Graceland Caravan Park somewhere in the middle of nowhere where he scribbles verse whilst drinking Scotch, listening to Johnny Cash and throwing heavy objects at his portable telly. Two series of his sitcom “Elvis McGonagall Takes A Look On The Bright Side” have been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 where he appears regularly. Prepare yourself for dazzling Weltschmerz, satirical verse and anarchic wit as Elvis bellows into the void of our post-truth world. Fake news. Artisanal novichok. Piers Morgan. Yes, the good ship lollipop is sailing down the shi*t*r. Climb aboard with Elvis as he spits his scurrilous diatribes against the powers that be. Elvis McGonagall has suffered for his poetry. Now it’s your turn.
