Lyr

Just in case people are not aware,Lyr are a band consisting of the poet laureate Simon Armitage reading poetry backed by atmospheric music--not for everyone but I'm really enjoying the album.

One man's meat is another's poison, and all that. I thought what I heard of Lyr was absolutely hideous. But I can't stand S Armitage tbf...

A fan as well.  One of the best programmes I have seen, with Simon Armitage but not involving poetry, was about the Pendle witch trials.  Originally shown on BBC4 but now available on Prime, he brought so much more insight to the story than a normal documentar.  Recommend watching (even if not a fan) if you have Prime or get the chance to see it.
