WIYE presents Thomas Dolby & John Ingham on '80s pop & punk rock
Mon 15 May 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Thomas Dolby’s upcoming memoir The Speed Of Sound looks back at his hits - Hyperactive!, She Blinded Me With Science – the electronic pop revolution, collaborations with Bowie, Michael Jackson, the Grateful Dead and a ton of others, and his journey through Silicon Valley in the ‘90s. He was uniquely positioned to observe the tar-pits of the music business and the key events of the technology boom (while necking Chablis with Bill Gates): an extraordinary life.
John Ingham, was the first person to interview the Sex Pistols and review the Damned, Buzzcocks, Clash and Banshees and his recollections and stunning pictures appear in Spirit of '76, a new collection of his photo-journalism.
Both are great talkers and you’re guaranteed a fascinating evening.
