For the past eight months we have had the great pleasure of working with poet Jean Atkin on a new music and poetry project: Understories which we are planning to release next year.

One of the pieces from that project, 'Tom Palin at Cinderloo', has this week been published in Proletarian Poetry, and a video of the piece is now on YouTube.

‘Tom Palin at Cinderloo’ explores the story of a rising by ironworkers in Shropshire in 1821, as they protested against draconian pay cuts. It’s a classic tale of industrial abuse of labour, and it ended in the deaths of several of the strikers with many further injuries to women and children involved in the protest.

We hope you like it.
