Tucked away in a fold of history,

a band of poets as talented, life-enhancing and

influential as that legendary band from Liverpool

They could be called ‘The First Fab Four’, three great poets –

Keats, Shelley and Byron - plus their friend and supporter

Leigh Hunt. Now their work – inspiring, soothing,

full of beauty and vision - is available in

a unique new format.

The First Fab Four’ will introduce you to - or remind you

of - four great spirits who lived in - and reacted creatively to - a rapidly changing world.

Songwriter John Webster has brought them from the

printed page into the flow of the music-scene. Melodic

indie-folk songs, underpinned by Dave Eastoe’s thoughtful,

sympathetic musicianship, draw on a wide range of their lyrics

and give the four a new and contemporary presence.

Opening with ‘Jenny Kissed Me’, (a medley of their love lyrics);

introducing Lord Byron in ‘Lord B. in Motion’, exploring their

political side in Marathon, Rise like Lions and Wild Spirit;

moving on to Keats classics including To Autumn, Shelley’s

beautiful Italian love lyrics, and ending with songs that see them

pass into history, this is an album to create a

distinctive and refreshing poetic space.
