For those who are unaware of Attila The Stockbroker, he is a punk poet, and a folk punk musician and songwriter. He performs solo and as the leader of the band Barnstormer. He describes himself as a "sharp tongued, high energy social surrealist poet and songwriter." He has performed over 2,700 concerts, published six books of poems, and released 30+ recordings (CDs, LPs and singles).


He is an ardent supporter of Brighton & Hove Albion F.C., and for about 16 years was heavily involved in the successful battle to save the club and secure a new stadium, after the Goldstone Ground was sold to property developers in 1997. The Seagulls finally moved to their new stadium at Falmer in August 2011. He has been the team's poet in residence since 2000, and was the stadium announcer and DJ for 14 years, first at Gillingham, where the club spent two seasons playing 'home' games, and then at the club's temporary Withdean Stadium. As the main member of the one-off band Seagulls Ska, he had a single reach #17 in the UK charts in 2005, as part of the campaign for the new stadium.


Rory Ellis has spent many years touring locally and internationally taking inspiration from suburban street culture, some of the seedier Melbourne pubs he has worked in, not just as a performer, regular glimpses of the Melbourne underworld, people he's loved, lost, and from his own eventful life, rich in contrast. Audiences at Rory's numerous festival appearances and more intimate performances have been captivated by his powerful vocal command and subtle acoustic instrumentation that bring the vivid stories to life.
