August 2011 saw the release of 'Sustain your Ability to Satisfy' by Wasps Vs Humans aka Carl Antony Plover. The first book to be published by the punk poet, has seen him take in a series of dates across Ireland and the UK to promote its release. Carl's version of poetry has intrigued the Irish press & radio. Having featured on RTE Radio 1, the poet was brought back to record some more performances to be aired throughout the rest of this year.
