Take a look at this fab interview with Wilko Johnson in advance of the UK tour with Joanne Shaw Taylor, which is looming ever closer! The interview is in the Newcastle Chronicle – please note the upcoming Newcastle date is at the O2 Academy on April 15th and not the Sage Gateshead.
Looking forward to Record Store Day on April 16th?

Congratulations to everyone involved in the Julien Temple film ‘The Ecstasy Of Wilko Johnson’, which has been acknowledged by Mark Kermode as his documentary of the year!
Wilko is among the first authors confirmed to appear at this year’s Henley Literary Festival, which takes place in September / October. It’s the tenth Henley Lit Fest and will be a copper-bottomed blast! Wilko will be talking about his upcoming memoir ‘Don’t You Leave Me Here’ (Little, Brown) which will be published this Spring.
If you weren’t lucky enough to catch Wilko and the boys on their recent tour of Spain (or indeed Sweden, which was a blast!) sponsor Estrella Galicia 1906 has sent us these great videos of the chaps in action, plus a lovely interview with the man himself.
Big thanks to everyone who came to the shows!
Happy New Year!
The New Statesman have included Wilko’s upcoming book ‘Don’t You Leave Me Here’ (Little, Brown) in their list of books to look out for this year.
The book is due out in May. Click here for more info!
Just in time for Christmas! Julien Temple’s marvellous documentary film ‘The Ecstasy Of Wilko Johnson’ is released on DVD on December 19th by Cadiz Music.
This very special package includes surreal and thought-provoking artwork from Jonny Halifax – who designed the award-winning poster for the film – and dark fairytale sleeve notes by biographer Zoë Howe.
We have had so many lovely messages for Wilko as a result of the film, particularly after its transmission on BBC 1 this month. It’s clear that Julien’s film and Wilko’s incredible story has touched so many people, which is wonderful.
Keep on rocking, and save the NHS! As Wilko put it, ‘They saved me.’
