Good mates head out on UK tour

ATTILA The Stockbroker and Rory Ellis bring their Separated At Birth 2012 tour to the Darwin Suite at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Saturday, May 26.

Attila and Rory have been good mates for ages, but have never gigged much together before. 30 shows all over the country – including Derby – are going to change all that.

Inspired by punk, and especially The Clash, performance poet and songwriter Attila the Stockbroker is loud, radical, lyrical, reflective, will make you roar with laughter as well as seethe with anger and 2010 saw his 30th anniversary tour.

Singer-songwriter Rory Ellis from Melbourne is real, rootsy and, yes, occasionally rude (which is one of the many things he and Attila have in common!) Before picking up his guitar, Rory was a boxer and a nightclub doorman, among many other things and there is a whole wealth of very varied experience in the songs he sings and the tales he has to tell and his voice is truly extraordinary.
