Gig Description

Arguably the most rock n roll/controversial politician of all time and the most recognisable Scottish voice in the UK, George Galloway joins author Julie Hamill in conversation about his highly acclaimed audio book ’Street Fighting’, with a signing, an audience Q&A, all followed by by a 1970s inspired DJ set from ‘glamnesiac’ Tony Bugbear Gleed. George Galloway was born into poverty in a slum Irish immigrant quarter of the Scottish city of Dundee. He began the 1970s running wild in a gang – the Lochee Fleet – and ended the decade, as most people said, running the city itself. In subsequent decades he would rarely be out of the news but this personal memoir of the 1970s goes back to where he started. Shocking from the start, Galloway’s memoir interlaces his own young life into the most turbulent decade in British history, film, music, football, strikes, war in Ireland – indeed, war throughout the world. To understand the 1970s is to understand George Galloway. And vice versa. Galloway is already writing the sequel to this volume: The Thatcher Years of the 1980s, which he describes as Britain’s hangover, a hangover so bad that Britain almost died. George Galloway; like him or loathe him. You’d be lying if you said he wasn’t interesting…
