You Wouldn't Feed This To Your Dog Reviews

  • Kokila Patel

    Sharp wit mixed with brutal honesty makes for a relentlessly entertaining read. Another page turner from Andy c!

    Andy Carrington is one hell of a poet, and one hell of a punk. I'm sure I say this every time but this collection is his best work to date. Faultless writing, as up to date as you can get, KFC out of chicken gets a mention, what kind of moron phones 999 when a fast food restaurant is out of food? The world seems to have become as dumb as a bag of hammers!

    Some future classic titles here: "HIPSTER BEARDS ON FIRE", "I'd never get tired stamping on JEREMY KYLE's FACE" and "#TWATS".

    You'll start off

    Andy Carrington is one hell of a poet, and one hell of a punk. I'm sure I say this every time but this collection is his best work to date. Faultless writing, as up to date as you can get, KFC out of chicken gets a mention, what kind of moron phones 999 when a fast food restaurant is out of food? The world seems to have become as dumb as a bag of hammers!

    Some future classic titles here: "HIPSTER BEARDS ON FIRE", "I'd never get tired stamping on JEREMY KYLE's FACE" and "#TWATS".

    You'll start off thinking "This guy seems to be a tad angry" and before you know it you be thinking "Fecking 'ell this guy is spot on".

    Favourites from this collection are HIPSTER BEARDS ON FIRE, Anti-Everything and The best of the bunch "Fuck Christmas" Book should probably come with a warning "Believe in Santa? Then put down this book now!"

    If you haven't tried anything by Andy Carrington here is a sample for you taken from Anti-Everything:

    Fuck this poem / this running-

    out pen / this waste of a dead tree

    skin

    let's put it bluntly: thinking's overrated / creativity's for vulnera-

    ble nut-

    jobs / losers / low-lives and has-

    beens

    without doh or food we have no

    means

    or energy to give a

    toss

    and I can't get motivated to write a-

    bout any-

    thing

    when words a-

    lone

    don't

    change

    nuthin.

    PS: This book contains the word Wazzock. Epic!

    Just some real shit , for a change. My very faves are 'The People vs. Barbie and Ken', #Twats. And the coolest thing I've read in a while 'Fuck Christmas....for the kids....' Thank you Andy.

  • Shirley Revill

    I can't wait to start reading this book. Love Andy Carringtons books.

    To be continued.

    I'm about halfway through and this book is brilliant. Problem is I keep backtracking to read again.

    Total genius. Update.

    I really enjoyed every word in this book.

    There is not one poem that I could pick out as my favourite. I loved each and every one.

    If you haven't read anything by Andy Carrington then I feel you are really missing out.

    Very highly recommended.

    Carrington’s latest poetry book is one of his best. After his last few books which have had more of a specific theme running throughout (like machines taking over, or being boxed in with cars and buildings whilst street signs’ authoritative manner turn us insane), this one sees Andy going back to basics, in both style and subject matter. Quite simply, Britain’s fucked, the world’s fucked, and Andy bluntly tells you why and how. Carrington’s punk roots are blatant in this collection, and it has t

    Carrington’s latest poetry book is one of his best. After his last few books which have had more of a specific theme running throughout (like machines taking over, or being boxed in with cars and buildings whilst street signs’ authoritative manner turn us insane), this one sees Andy going back to basics, in both style and subject matter. Quite simply, Britain’s fucked, the world’s fucked, and Andy bluntly tells you why and how. Carrington’s punk roots are blatant in this collection, and it has that raw energy of all the best early punk songs/lyrics which were a reaction to 70s’ broken Britain. We’re in the same boat again, only forty years on, broken Britain has been wrapped in a gameshow smile, social media coolness and Nanny State cotton wool. Carrington cuts through the bullshit and shows the underside of modern life that’s falling apart and segregating us more and more. There’s little hope for the future of mankind in this poet’s words, but, just like with The Clash, Sham 69 and The Specials, hearing Carrington’s words still makes me hopeful for a better future, because Andy is proof that those old punk views are still alive and kicking, and they’ll never go away.

    This d.i.y. poet stands fully behind his own words:

    "

    but if you really wanna

    write...

    just

    write: be harsh

    be funny.

    Be true."

    Some of my favorites in this collection were HIPSTER BEARDS ON FIRE, Made in Britain, Pop Art Sux, Trash TV..., The People vs Barbie & Ken, Money Makes the World Go Round, No Future 4 the Forest, and #TWATS.

  • A. Blumer

    This was a great little collection to get a grasp on what Carrington's writing is to him. It was political, impolite, a little personal, & very defiant to the mainstream our first-world society seems damn determined to swim down.

    I feel the same churning in my stomach towards most of the points made here & felt the collection was well constructed!

    & as always, shout-out to Carrington's unique structure.

    4.5/5*

  • Melki

    Punches and stabs of angry young man poetry with occasional musings about shoes dangling from phone lines. It made for good reading, though if Andy was standing on the corner shouting out his verses, I'd cross the street to avoid him.

    The tightrope upstart Carrington delivers exhaust fume checks on daytime television induced psychosis, solo end of line jabs intent to resolve the accused feckless, vicious nostalgia for common sense, daydreaming decency (or the gospel fairness at least), rose-tinted scratched screens, against the tide with a failing body, sick to its stomach, bug to its guts, intestines noosing zero hour shoulders.

    The tightrope upstart Carrington delivers exhaust fume checks on daytime television induced psychosis, solo end of line jabs intent to resolve the accused feckless, vicious nostalgia for common sense, daydreaming decency (or the gospel fairness at least), rose-tinted scratched screens, against the tide with a failing body, sick to its stomach, bug to its guts, intestines noosing zero hour shoulders.

    The recidivism of a crackpot system, trickling down in mythos, to the had. Downbeat volatility in practice and remembrance, you know things are bad when the words fail.

    You should read Carrington if you are British and pissed off, or have interest in this virus.
