Scott Devon is one of the first of a new generation of street poets that are emerging through the UK performance poetry scene. His words have been described as like a child whose been given a gun, explosive and dangerous. His words deal with the modern world crisis, the export of the unhappiness of the USA to countries and people that simply have no use for it, because as the UK becomes the 51st state we loose ourselves and the winner of the rat-race can only ever be a rat.
Scott has been published in numerous websites and magazines since he began performing in 2004 and most recently in the New Word Order anthology, ‘Out Of Order’. He is due to release a full CD of his street poetry next year.
