Chloe Poems and Rosie Lugosi are a pair of poet-performance artists par excellence who, from time to time, put work out through Jayne Compton's Switchflicker imprint.
I've seen Chloe a fair few times but she always manages to move me, usually with her restrained and understated classic, The Queen Sucks Nazi Cock in Hell.
Fellow Switchflicker associate, The Divine David, was also a huge favourite of mine. The first time I saw him (an impromptu 'plain-clothes' performance at the Temple of Convenience) it took me weeks to pick my jaw up off the floor. The second time, at Jilly's, he flicked red emulsion all over a new winter coat that I'd saved up for for weeks. That was nine years ago, and I am now prepared to say: come back David, all is forgiven. Manchester needs you. xxx
