Now on sale: The Gospel According to Blindboy at Belfast Book Festival

Rubberbandit Blindboy Boatclub will be reading from his debut book in Belfast this November

The Gospel According to Blindboy at Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast

THE higher profile half of bag-headed Limerick hip-hop/comedy duo The Rubberbandits has got a new book coming out later in the year – and he's coming to Belfast to promote it, courtesy of The Belfast Book Festival.

Blindboy Boatclub has now become a firm favourite with fans of RTE's Late Late Show show thanks to his straight-talking approach to topical discussion.

Due for release in October 2017, The Gospel According to Blindboy is his debut collection of short stories and pictures, exploring "the myths, complacencies and contradictions at the heart of modern Ireland" (it says here).

It finds Blindboy waxing textual on "everything from love and death to sex and politics" in a tome that's "pitched halfway between the Angelus and Oculus Rift, globalisation and gombeenism".

You can hear the be-bagged one reading from his book at the Crescent Arts Centre on Sunday November 19 – and don't forget that he and Mr Chrome will also be Gammon Wrangling in Belfast at QUBSU on October 7.

:: Tickets for The Gospel According to Blindboy are on sale now priced £12/10 via http://bit.ly/CACBlindBoy
