Simon Collision linked to Simon Armitage’s new LYR album. I was in a spoken-word-set-to music mood this morning and was held up while listening by him reciting sing a rainbow — a song that’s been on background loop with Piglet. We’re partial to the Peggy Lee version.

I first came across Armitage back in 2008, when I read The Green Knight in a single sitting with a sick Chef napping on me. Our early days, cross-country commuting, where a grey and ill Manchester day still had to be spent together.

I enjoyed the album. And the date.
