Glass interviews writer Jeremy Reed — prophet of the radical and marginalised

“Part desperation, high on risk and big crowd anonymity,” visionary poet Jeremy Reed intones in a sotto voce yet raspy drawl upon Piccadilly Bongo, the album opener to Big City Dilemma, his first aural chancing with musician and producer Itchy Ear. This is an effective miniaturisation of the visionary scribe’s vast polarities – all glamour and glut, mundanity and miasma. An insidious jarring of lyric and sound. During a 30-year career, he has had over 40 works published ranging from collections of poetry, novels and biographies of Scott Walker and Anna Kavan amongst others. It is a wonder he hasn’t utilised this form before.

Glass meets Jeremy in Patisserie Valerie on Old Compton Street, or Pat Val as he fondly refers to it, once of the last starry-eyed haunts of a fading Soho. Like a modern-day Marcus Aurelius, Jeremy exudes a certain erudite calm amongst the busy carnage of his surrounds. He is wistful yet never obtuse, succinct in his recollections. A charming dichotomy trussed up in a purple beret …"
