You can also hear Wilko talking about his book with Robert Elms on BBC London here, about staying in Europe on The World Tonight here, and don’t miss him on Steve Wright In The Afternoon on BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday 25th May!
Wilko Johnson will be making some appearances this summer to discuss and read from his upcoming memoir ‘Don’t You Leave Me Here’ (Little, Brown) – we know many of you have been wondering where and when these events will take place, and many of the festivals have not yet announced their line-ups or further details, so we have to keep schtum until then, BUT here are a few dates to start us off with:
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.
