Mad about the (Watt-) Roy...
Next week (Wednesday 15th October) sees half man, half bass Mr Norman Watt-Roy return to the Hare and Hounds to play some of the many Ian Dury & The Blockheads hits that he was involved with plus solo stuff and favourite covers. I've seen him a few times now and he's an absolute joy, funky as they come and with more energy than a man half his age...or mine for that matter. In the absence of Ian he does a ruddy good job on vocals too and...who knows...maybe even the Lazarus-like Wilco Johnson will show up like he did last time (against all odds he's seemingly kicking cancer's ass...remarkable).
Tickets available right here, right now.
PS: Don't forget to check out the other gigs from promoters World Unlimited (they've got Ian McNabb on the 16th October and Nick Harper on 13th November, both at the Hare plus oodles of lovely intimate shows at The Kitchen Garden Cafe!)
