John Otway + Flameproof Moth + Liz Bentley. @ The Goose Is Out! Saturday 3rd December. The Ivy House, Stuart Road. SE15 3BE. Ticket info below. Doors 7pm.


A manic presence, and a true "one-off", John first became notorious back in 1977 after an appearance on the Old Grey Whistle Test with his former partner Wild Willy Barrett.

He had leapt astride Wild Willy's amplifier, and lost his footing. One leg slipped on one side of the sturdy wooden piece of musical equipment, and the other leg down the other. The whole weight of Otway's body crashed down on the most delicate parts of his body.

This sort of behaviour went down exceedingly well with the punk audiences of the time, and Otway was rewarded with his first hit "Cor Baby, That's Really Free", a recording contract worth a million in today's money, and a sizeable live audience.

It took a little while, but a quarter of a century after that first record, John Otway was in the Top Ten again with "Bunsen Burner", promoting him in a stroke to the hallowed pantheon of "two hit wonders."

We are particularly delighted to have two brilliant (and brilliantly funny!) local support artists tonight - Flameproof Moth (formerly Boycott Coca Cola Experience) and Liz Bentley.

Highly entertaining guy and a legend in his Aylesbury lunchtime.
I was pleased to get to his 1998 Albert Hall concert.
It was a greatt show with Wilko Johnson joining him and Wild Willy on stage.
Springing off an aluminium step-ladder and amazingly somersaulting with a corded guitar were all part of his act.
Ten years later at the Blackheath Halls a friend introduced him to me (him a muso me a former music biz tech).
Wild Willy told me the ladder's in but the somersault was out these days.
Willy is a brilliant all round musician.
Unbelievably John Otway is 60 next year (but don't tell him).

Thanks Nygelgoose,
Although I'm not far away in Lewisham unfortunately I won't be able to make it. I'm sure John will put on a great gig.
