Event description

Description

We don’t have many Oscar winners. Anne Dudley got hers for The Full Monty. She wrote the scores for countless other films and TV series, The Crying Game, The Pope Must Die and Les Misėrables among them. And Poldark which you imagine includes a track called 'Shirtless Man Scything, Part 7'.

This will be a fascinating evening, the pop circus seen from every angle imaginable – conductor, arranger, composer, session player and - briefly - hit-maker in her own right. Her first major break was arranging the strings for ABC’s The Lexicon Of Love and for Frankie Goes To Hollywood. She wrote songs with Malcolm McLaren and Sting, and played keyboards with everyone from Pet Shop Boys, McCartney and Cher to Lloyd Cole and Kingmaker. And in the early ‘80s was a member of the magnificent Art Of Noise.

We’re also delighted to announce Mick Houghton as a late addition to the bill.

Mick’s an old friend of the podcast - we featured his Sandy Denny biography ‘I Always Kept A Unicorn’ a while back. His new book - ‘Fried & Justified: Hits, Myths, Beak-Ups and Breakdowns in the Record Business 1978-98’ – is a telling and unique account of the 30 years he spent running press and public relations for various fascinating acts and what he discovered about the way they worked – among them the Undertones, the Teardrop Explodes, Echo & The Bunnymen, Talking Heads, the Ramones, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Sonic Youth and Elastica. Worth it alone for the cracking account of the KLF’s £40,000-in-cash Turner Prize caper and their burn-a-million-quid art statement on the Island Of Jura.
