A big welcome back to John Otway, who returns with His Big Band to the Borderline for the ultimate Rock ‘n’ Roll Extravaganza. His movie Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure – Otway The Movie has been playing to packed houses across the country. It was shown at Glastonbury and selected for the prestigious Cannes and Cambridge Film Festivals.
In the midst of Britain’s 1970s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts with his occasional partner, Wild Willy Barrett. His next HIT was 25 years later.
Expect a great laugh plus all the rocking’ hits: Beware Of The Flowers, Really Free, Geneva, Bunsen Burner, Green Green Grass of Home, and much, much more plus some great new songs from the recent album he recorded with the Big Band on the island of Monserrat last year.
‘He’s a cabaret act masquerading as a rock act. He is gleeful, anecdotal, funny and life-enhancing.’ ’ Canterbury Fayre Review.
“…makes it difficult to tell if he is barking mad or a musical genius….” Screenjabber Review
Here’s a recent (but shakey) amateur video:
