FEASTING WITH PANTHERS is a collaboration between Marc Almond
and composer Michael Cashmore setting poems of Count Eric
Stenbock plus unique translations by celebrated poet Jeremy Reed
of poems by Jean Genet, Jean Cocteau, Rimbaud, Paul Verlaine - as
well as Reed s own poetry - to music. 'Decadent' poems of thwarted
love, ill-fated romance, decadence and death are woven with homoeroticism
and laced with opium and are accompanied by Michael
Cashmore's haunting and melancholic music that gives the verses a
feeling of yearning for beauty and a longing for a lost innocence and
