Garth is a film-maker, musician and if he can’t sing them, he poems them.

Garth also published Anti-Nuclear Poetry, with Ken Wallace printing the cover, during the mid 1970s.

Garth and I took first year English class together and the prof asked for a meeting with us. When we met she asked us if we would not talk during the tutorial — not that she didn’t appreciate what we had to say but everyone else was either content to let us do all the talking, or too scared to utter a word. We understood — we both have big voices. We both kept quiet, though I do remember once or twice Garth saying, “C’mon— you,” he’d point at someone, “say something.”
