Julien Temple’s extraordinary documentary ‘The Ecstasy Of Wilko Johnson’ was screened on BBC 1 as part of the ‘Imagine…’ series on November 24th. You can still catch it on the BBC iPlayer here, available until Christmas Eve.
And, what with Christmas coming up, if you’re after a DVD for that special person in your life, you can order one here! It’s a beautiful item and comes complete with surreal artwork by Jonny Halifax (who designed the award-winning film poster for the ‘The Ecstasy Of Wilko Johnson’) and rock ‘n’ roll fairytale sleeve notes by Wilko Johnson / Lee Brilleaux biographer Zoë Howe.
Check out the film trailer for ‘The Ecstasy Of Wilko Johnson’ below.
The November issue of Reader’s Digest is out now, and features a great ‘I Remember’ Q&A with Wilko, conducted by Amanda Riley-Jones. Lots of lovely images from the ‘Looking Back At Me’ book in there too.
Exciting news! Wilko Johnson will be writing a new book about his incredible journey over the past few years, titled ‘Don’t You Leave Me Here’. The new book will be published by major publisher Little, Brown in 2016.
