Touchline are delighted to welcome John Otway & the Big Band back to Hockley. John Otway is an English singer-songwriter who has built a sizeable cult audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and a self-deprecating underdog persona. His movie Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure - Otway The Movie has been played to packed houses across the country, was shown at Glastonbury and selected for the prestigious Cambridge Film Festival. In the midst of Britain's 1970s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts. his next HIT was 25 years later. Expect a great laugh plus all the rocking' hits: Beware Of The Flowers, Really Free, Geneva, Bunsen Burner, Green Green Grass of Home, and many more! 'He's a cabaret act masquerading as a rock act. He is gleeful, anecdotal, funny and life-enhancing.'' Canterbury Fayre Review. makes it difficult to tell if he is barking mad or a musical genius.
