Painting a poignant vision of a lovelorn, desolate Christmas day in Edinburgh, Paul Hullah’s spoken word poem ‘I’m on your side, Ophelia’, rings out as a welcome antidote to the piped yuletide muzak belched out at this time of year.
With musical backing by the Filthy Tongues, the song also features on the vinyl addition to the book SCENES, released by Martin Metcalfe and Paul Hullah.
