New Book: The Greatest Living Englishman
Readings, performance, book signing and drink!
a chance to get close up and personal; with one of the great eccentrics of contemporary rock, pop and poetry culture.
The Greatest Living Englishman is the long awaited second instalment of Martin Newell’s rock memoir. The follow up to 2001’s book This Little Ziggy, this book covers the years 1975 to 1995. During this time the author stumbles through the punk years with his Lo-Fi band Cleaners from Venus, before emerging in the 1990s as a nationally famous and much published pop poet.
Working with Captain Sensible, John Cooper Clarke, XTC’s Andy Partridge and others, his strange and convoluted journey soon leads him unexpectedly to international success….
…but he always returns to Colchester…
Why not come along on Tues 19th, listen to a few yarns a couple of his tunes and some wonderful excuses?
