Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949 in Chicago) is an American poet and musician, known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word performer, associated with African American militant activists. Heron is perhaps most well known for his poems/songs "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" and "What's the Word - Johannesburg" a movement hit during the 1980's South Africa college and national divestment movement in the United States of America.
Attila the Stockbroker is a punk rock performance poet and songwriter, he did the first of approximately 2,700 gigs in 24 countries (to date!) on Sept 8 1980, and he's very proud to have earned his living doing what he loves for 30 years this September! As for what he's going to do here, well, first of all he's put up some songs/poems, a few for free download. He posts many of the gigs as well, but for a full list you're better off going to his myspace page or website. He's on here as a listener too - attilastockbrok - some good recommendations there!
