With one days notice I appeared at the 10th anniversary Tony Wilson event in Walthamstow replacing the photographer Kevin Cummins. I was just going as an audience member.
I was on the discussion panel with the wonderful Rowetta of Happy Mondays, James Endeacott and Buzzcocks manager Richard Boon, chaired by John Robb. It was filmed and is up on you tube as Tony Wilson: What Was And What Could Be (I think!) Paul Morley also appeared reading extracts from his forthcoming Tony Wilson book that he has already interviewed me for.
Mark Hart who organised the event had become quite a Hewick fan (!) and has proposed a follow up..TBC but it will be my first ever headliner in London at Centre 17 Walthamstow on Thursday October 19th. (DATE CHANGE!)
The proposed format will be:
A 30 minute set by local trio Crayon Angels.
A 30 minute 1st set by me.
A 30 minute conversation with Jude Rawlins/.
A 45 minute 2nd set by me.
Pre and after sounds by DJ Nick Watt (who worked with Tony Wilson on In The City Festival)
It will also launch my next album 'Driven By Love Driven By Hate' - we conclude sessions this month, 70 minutes plus 16 or 17 songs depending if one makes the cut.
All to be confirmed but very excited!
