“Review of “Vergions” by Brendan Hickey Dublin Poet & Radio presenter Posted on November 22, 2010 by gigspy12 I was never a man into poetry, yes I’m a shallow fish. Having received a copy of Brendan Hickey’s debut album “Vergions” released this year, I have changed my mind. Maybe I have matured, people who know me will be glad to hear that. My friend informed me that Brendan has a weekly show on DSFM www.ontheverge.ie where he brings in unsigned acts to promote their new material etc… and he has done this for a number of years. Well it’s time Brendan gets some kudos, for a change, for this brilliantly written & produced album of poetry accompanied with some nice music. “a tear displays her need for him..” taken from “She wont call” track 5 on this excellent album of sheer beauty, and elegance with a tinge of darkness, from a well read Dublin poet. This time, instead of giving the accolades, he receives one from me. The perfect Xmas gift !”
