Barney Ashton-Bullock ft. Andy Bell: F**kpig Zeitgeist! – The Torsten Verse Diaries (Book + Bonus CD)

TORSTEN, THE POLYSEXUAL, SEMI-IMMORTAL ALTER-EGO OF ERASURE SINGER ANDY BELL IS THE FIGUREHEAD OF THE ‘ANDY BELL IS TORSTEN’ ALBUMS AND THEATRE SHOWS WRITTEN BY POET BARNEY ASHTON-BULLOCK.

FOLLOWING THEIR SELL-OUT FIRST POETRY & PHOTO BOOK, 2017’S ‘SCHEMA/STASIS’, ‘F**KPIG ZEITGEIST!’ IS THE SECOND ‘ANDY BELL IS TORSTEN’ BOOK, THIS TIME COMING WITH AN EXCLUSIVE, LIVE ANDY BELL CD IN AN ULTRA-LIMITED EDITION OF ONLY 250 COPIES.

We have the last 10 copies of this release available for purchase.

‘F**kpig Zeitgeist!’ contains a lengthy foreword by Andy Bell and many photographs of him in character as ‘Torsten’. These verse diaries are a richly stylised, sensu-sexual poetic disclosure recording the pertinent life-events and hotspots of memory from Torsten’s unnaturally elongated life as a weary foot soldier on the cruising ground battlefields of love; ever desensitised by the circularity of relentless carnality, yet, still ‘wanting to be wanted’!

“…celebrates the broken souls who cling to a desperate hope despite the overarching chaos and indifference of an often cruel, judgemental world.” (Andy Bell, 2020).

“…impacts like verbal weaponry. Viscerally raw” (Jeremy Reed, Poet, 2020).

The included bonus CD “Queereteria TV : The Live Stage Show Highlights” includes the following songs, all featuring Andy Bell, some as duets with co-star musical theatre legend Peter Straker: Bell Jar Song / A Hundred Years Plus Today / Not Opting Out / Lowland Lowriders / Photos Of Daniel / I Am The Boy Who Smiled At You / Blow Jobs For Cocaine / To Know Good Friends From Perverts / Bizarre Bits ‘The Lady Domina Bizarre TV Theme Tune’.
