From the Publisher:

"Like your mum's fave Victoria Wood spitting out the rhymes of
Mike Skinner....There's fire in Broadhurst's belly and bile in her brain,
while her fiery spoken witticisms rock and roar. You can't mosh to poetry,
but if you could, then you'd mosh to this." James Jam, NME

"A good strong dose of Northern attitude or humour. I'm sure if you put
Penny Broadhurst into the internet you'll find out plenty about her...if
you dare!" Patrick Wolf

About the Author:

"Who is she?

Self-confessed geek and outsider pop pro, 26-year-old Penny Broadhurst is
the Joyce Grenfell of bedroom electro. Broadhurst started as a spokenword
artist, but soon realised the music in her considerable brain had to be

So what does it sound like?

Not dissimilar to the Streets' edgy urban ramblings, and not a world away
from the strange universe inhabited by John Cooper Clarke. Broadhurst
debates such important contemporary matters as frozen food, Primark and
call centres with infectious zest and humour. LJaded is a tribute to the
Myspace and blogging generation, while Fun Pub is a superb evocation of
Broadhurst's anti-cool Britpop youth. Her work is also dusted with more
than its fair share of Doctor Who references.

Ah, a fan of the Doctor, eh?

She has two - count 'em - sonic screwdrivers, and is currently pondering
whether her fear of Jimmy Saville is enough to put her off writing to the
new series of Jim'll Fix It and asking to be on the Doctor Who soundtrack.

Where can I hear her?

She's currently recording her second album, A Little More Sonic, which is
set for release next year, as is single LJaded - which you can hear on, You can also buy her debut album, Blue Bank."

Leonie Cooper, The Guardian
