Wilko wrote a little piece for the Guardian on ‘lockdown life’…. and the place he most wishes he could go. Have a read, it might surprise you:
‘From what I could see from the script, all I had to do was go around giving people dirty looks…’ Wilko reveals to Metro his memories of playing the formidable Ser Ilyn Payne (who is still on Arya Stark’s kill list), amid Game Of Thrones season 8 fever!
The UK tour is underway – thanks to everyone who has attended shows so far!
Need a little reading matter to round off the week? Here’s a lovely interview with Wilko in Guitar World. Thanks to Mark McStea for spreading the ‘Blow Your Mind’ gospel across the pond!
‘Anyone who’s ever loved Wilko’s music has got a major treat in store with Blow Your Mind. After the audience-broadening appeal of the Daltrey collaboration, hopefully this release will cement his new-found status and finally get him the recognition he deserves Stateside.’
Wilko is one of 40 of the world’s most esteemed rock legends to feature in the fantastic new book ‘The First Time’, a collection of interviews by BBC Radio 6 Music star Matt Everitt. Other contributors include Blondie, Yoko Ono, Alice Cooper, Pete Townshend… it’s essential! Check it out!
Now here’s something we can believe in! We love this feature and hope you do too. Words by Ian Fortnum.
Snap up a copy of the September issue of Q Magazine to check out Wilko Johnson on ‘The Albums That Changed (His) Life’! Expect Van, Bo, The Doors… and a lovely mention of Southend enigma Mickey Jupp.
And brace yourself for a few surprises…
Thanks to Classic Rock Magazine for including ‘Blow Your Mind’ (‘sounding as fresh as a freshly-baked bap’) in this stellar list! Best Albums Of The Year So Far – not too shabby at all. Click here to see the review and the rest of the list:
