Current Poet Laureate David Eggleton emerged as part of the punk rock scene in the 1980s, performing alongside New Wave bands on the pub and cafe circuit. A South Auckland pathfinder, one of the OG's, an old-school rapper and Kiwi ranter, David Eggleton’s Pasifika heritage and passion for poetry performance result in poems which have a strong oral and rhythmic quality.
Steve Thomas was raised in Cardiff in Wales, downwind from a brewery and a pickle factory and the legend of Dylan Thomas. Educated at Brunel University in London, he performed back in the day on the same stage as the Moody Blues and Fairport Convention.
