In Brian Mackenzie’s second volume of poems and songs the topics of happiness, pain, breakup, lies, lust and laughter are explored. The ups and downs of relationships including the darkness of depression that is rarely spoken of. But the collection isn’t all doom and gloom: with the lows come the highs and humour to keep us going! The Standing Dead holds poems and songs about the vast spectrum of love that we can all relate to. Some of Brian’s songs have been adapted, recorded and released by the fabulous Desert Life and are available through all the normal channels.
