★ About Between Stations Live:
Poet Andy Willoughby finds himself transported on a mock epic, high-octane locomotive beat journey from his native post-industrial Teesside to deepest Siberia and back again. With an improvised soundtrack of half-forgotten Irish Catholic hymns, Fenno-Ugrian magic chants, Russian folk tales and a battered old Bob Dylan cassette, Between Stations ricochets between present and past with a raggle-taggle bunch of Finnish fellow-travelling poets and the
hallucinatory shades of Blake, Mayakovsky, Eisenstein and Mandelstam on a ramshackle quest for the Golden Woman of Khanty Mansisk and a razor sharp examination of the hidden causes of Brexit Britain.

‘Andy Willoughby is an urban shaman, calling on the small gods to kid us through a journey of transformation that takes us from beginnings to endings and back again. It is a mapping of the
liminal space, by one of the masters of the working-class biro in a blue ink tattoo on the inside of his arm.’
— Joelle Taylor
