television vs the future of socialism

Plan reprinting Home'Baked edition S Club 7 versus the Anticapitalists. Very limited 'artists book' cover (left) is not new tho costly to reproduce when first published. Technology ten years on enabled availability cheap chapbook with colour-cover. Can also be rekindled ebook. Title free-to-view.

Exciting new twenty-something poets I've seen and heard last five years were teenagers when S Club first appeared on television. May have considered them Monkee-like UK manufactured group from years of millennial adolescence. There are perhaps newer poet-n-tials (just about to start creative writing uni courses) who may actually have been ardent 7-year-old S Club 7 fans.

In performance S Club 7 vs the Anticapitalists intended two-voicer. Sean Bonney and Jeff Hilson did blinding reading with text Writers Forum workshop back in the day.

If S Club 7 present day appears dated (or worse, heads up for late '90ies nostalgia) - read "s" in S Club as abstract factor "x". As X-factored pop idols of near future led nowheres by unreality television light entertainment during crises of broadcasting late capitalism.
