John Otway-Live music

Printer-friendly versionPDF version
Music in Ulpha presents "Rock and Roll’s Greatest failure!"- John Otway. 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. Many will remember his debut on the legendary Old Gray Whistle Test in 1977, with Wild Willy Barrett. Otway, ever the showman, decided to jump on to the amplifier during his performance. (Un)fortunately for Otway, he misjudged his leap and sent Wild Willy Barrett’s amplifier tumbling as he crashed down straddling the box under the amp. The full force of the impact was absorbed by the most tender part of his body, but in doing this one simple act of recklessness and his wanton disregard for his own safety, Otway was the talk of everyone who watched that evening’s programme. A superb night of music and laughter awaits!
