The Spirit Of Punk

Joolz @DarkMAD 2023

Joolz Denby (born Julianne Mumford, previously known simply as Joolz) is a poet, novelist, artist and tattooist based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, England.

Known simply as Joolz, Denby is a poet, novelist, artist, illustrator, and professional tattooist. She first came to prominence as a touring punk performance poet. She does not consider herself a “performance poet”; instead, she designates herself a “spoken-word artist” as she considers that title more accurate.

Musically she landed a real hit with the track “The Stand”, that became a cult song in the 80s and still gets played at clubs and parties to the delight of old and new fans.
