Tom Bailey

Had a visit from one of our favorite Derby entities, Mr Tom Bailey, singer/songwriter for The Longford Family Band and self-proclaimed drunk poet who was good enough to remind me that his new website Record of the Self now holds all of his poems, stories and articles. I'm particularly fond of his poetry, Nan's House stands out to me as a modern elegy to afternoons with your dear old Grandma that speaks of warmth and unconditional compassion. Tom also has a new book of poems that he has self published in true style. I haven't got a copy yet but you can be sure to hear about it when I do. In the mean time indulge yourself  on this
