Jock Scot, a poet without pretence. A man whose words- music and words- touched the senses in such a way to make them feel exceedingly other-worldly, while remaining painfully down to earth. And not only down to earth, but deep in the dark, dank and dirty underground. One of the last of the true punk poets… For every Jock Scott we lose, we gain a Carol Ann Duffy, what a sad and scary thought.
