In their opening event of 2016, Bristol's spoken-word platform 'Word of Mouth' introduced a packed crowd at Totterdown's arts pub, The Thunderbolt, to the crowd-pleasing, old-skool punk-poet Attila the Stockbroker.

       Taking to the stage after a collection of shorter stints from other wordsmiths and musicians, 'Attila' grabbed the room by the scruff of the neck and performed a series of fire-bellied poems, stories, songs and readings (with nods to 'Arguments Yard', his recently-released autobiography).
