The James Worse Public Address Method: The Concuble Awakes!

from Vocology #01: »Phonosurgery« by V.A. // A 100th jubilee tribute to Godfrey Edward Arnold



"These are ‘Worsicles’ – words which appear in my mind unbidden, one at a time, in a strangely familiar dream-language. I do not consciously write these pieces. They are an amalgam of fragments sent from the unconscious."

Mr Worse began writing and performing four years ago in 2010, around the time his twin sons were born.
His belief is that the rigours of full-time childcare, with its associated mental destabilisation and loss of sleep triggered a state of perpetual lucidity.
This, and his childrens' nascent verbal activity turned his thinking to the very beginnings of speech. Finally, reading symbolist and beat poetry to his captive audience of babies he found his voice.
Like the ancient bards, Mr Worse is laying down his own oral history, and in a digital era where our every step is filed as retrievable data, he chooses to leave no written record - refusing to publish his ongoing epic, "Flark of the Dandibus".
Mr Worse lives in Rochester, Kent, with his wife and children
