APPEARING ON Monday, September 21st, 2009

the Incompatible John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett [+]

Monday 21st September

Tickets £10 advance/£12 on the door

The pair first achieved notoriety with an eye watering performance on ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’ and subsequent hit single `Really Free` in 1977. The two soon went their separate ways but still perform together occasionally. Otway’s heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this microstar shining for almost two decades despite his ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage. His autobiography `Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure` out sold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit.

Otway’s finest moment came in 2002. Asked what he wanted for his 50th birthday, he requested `a second hit`. The track, `Bunsen Burner`, with music sampled from The Trammps’ classic `Disco Inferno` and lyrics devised to help his daughter with her chemistry homework, reached the UK Number 9 and earned him an appearance on `Top of the Pops`, BBC Television’s flagship popular music programme.

Wild Willy Barrett is one of the most accomplished multi-instrumentalists working today, playing acoustic classical guitar with an original style and virtuosity few can match. His humour on stage is dry.

Following another very successful Edinburgh Festival residency, John and Willy are now on a nationwide tour. Don’t miss this rare chance to see them together!
