For nearly seventeen years now, Joseph Porter has been performing his songs as frontman with Blyth Power, a band so unique they defy classification, but for whom critical acclaim has never been less than rapturous. Now Joseph is performing acoustic solo sets in the interests of reaching those venues and audiences geared to something a little more reflective than a band described by a leading roots orientated publication as making The Levellers sound by comparison like Peter Paul and Mary.
An evening in the company of Joseph Porter, and his hard-beaten acoustic guitar has been compared to a cross between Private Eye, 1066 and all That and John Betjeman's coming out party. Combining a curious Englishness of style and voice with all his years' experience as a performer, and the oceanic wastes of his vocabulary, Joseph has something for everyone, whether they want to find Charles II in the Oak tree and grass him up, blow the gaff on the Baader-Meinhof gang and send them all to Stammheim prison, or engage in dangerous liaisons with sinful blue-rinsed ladies at the Blackpool party conference.
