WILKO JOHNSON TO APPEAR ON LATER WITH JOOLS HOLLAND

Wilko Johnson, guitarist and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, will appear on Later with Jools Holland on Tuesday September 27th and Friday September 30th.  The BBC 2 television appearance falls in the middle of his current nationwide UK tour.  Wilko’s band is Norman Watt-Roy (bass), and Dylan Howe (drums).  “The tour is going well and the TV appearance will provide a great focus for the remainder of it” said Wilko, “Norman & Dylan have been in great form and we’re having a great time, audiences have been brilliant.”

In 1971, Wilko first made his name when he formed Dr. Feelgood; one of the finest British R&B bands and founders of the Essex blues scene based around Canvey Island, Essex.  Famous for their high energy live shows, their first two albums, Down by the Jetty (1974) and Malpractice (1975), were hugely popular and influential.  By 1976, their live album, Stupidity was No.1 in the official UK album chart.  By the time Dr. Feelgood released their fourth album, Sneakin’ Suspicion (1977), Johnson left the group and to pursue a solo career, and in 1980 he became a member of Ian Drury and the Blockheads. In 2009, Johnson starred in Julien Temple’s “Oil City Confidential,” an award-winning documentary about Dr. Feelgood, and recently starred in HBO’s fantasy TV series “Game of Thrones.”
