James Massiah: Tim Westwood BBC Radio 1Xtra today 4-7 pm

We love us some James Massiah, he kind of brings the Beat Generation cool factor back into poetry in his “all black everything” and trench coat look. He is also one of the most unique up and coming spoken word artists in the scene right now and watching him is always a memorable experience you wish you could press the repeat button on. When he’s not raising the bar poetically he is stretching his performance muscles with the  Blackfoot Phoenix collective, who describe themselves as a “Motley assemblage of music makers” you can catch them at one of our favourite nights The Bang Bang tonight at CAMP (also the Poejazzi venue). But before that listen out for them on 1Xtra today between 4-7 pm. To keep up with the eclectic movements of James Massiah go to his website where you can watch his poetry performances, listen to Blackfoot Phoenix, and peruse the cool black and white photography blog. You can also subscribe to his updates on Facebook

Here’s a little taster for the uninitiated:
