Elvis McGonagall ("one man and his doggerel").  Stand-up poet, armchair revolutionary and recumbent rocker, Elvis McGonagall is the sole resident of The Graceland Caravan Park somewhere in the middle of nowhere where he scribbles verse whilst drinking malt whisky, listening to Johnny Cash and throwing heavy objects at his portable telly.  Elvis is the 2006 World Slam Champion, the compère of the notorious Blue Suede Sporran Club and is one of the poets occasionally in residence on BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live.  "If poetry is the new rock 'n roll then Elvis…. is Elvis" (Steve Larkin, Hammer & Tongue)
