Drawing on an ancient tradition, these captivating and slightly mad, mind-altering poems tackle the complexities of our changing world with a beautiful and savage humour.

Writing for The Independent Martin Newell said of the collection: ‘The poem, Brassed Off Billy Monty, is worth the price of the book alone but there’s a baker’s dozen equally as good skulking inside the covers. Gwynne Jones should be ruined with fame and money before he shows the rest of us up for the bunch of sissies we are. But if you don’t want the truth, don’t call a poet, at least not a real one.

In 2019, Hammer & Tongue (the UK’s live poetry platform) wrote: ‘Mark’s poetry book/album ‘PsychicBread’ is (in our opinion) one of the best British spoken word albums made so far. Surrealist humour, and mad performances hide a poignancy and sensitivity that make him a genuinely great poet.’ 

The CD recording that accompanied the book is now available to stream or download, here.

PsychicBread was published by Route in 2003, and reprinted in 2005.
