Gig Description

The Dublin Castle RNR Book Club proudly presents an evening with Richard Strange, the Cabaret Futura./Doctors Of Madness ( “The missing link between David Bowie and The Sex Pistols…” –The Guardian) guy, a towering figure in a Post Velvets/Pre Punk/Post Punk world of poetically imbued and powerfully realized art rock. Writer, musician, composer, nightclub host, curator, actor and adventurer, tonight Richard will be performing ‘An Accent Waiting To Happen’ and indulging in erudite Q and As with book club regulars Julie Hamill and Tony Gleed and you , the audience. Richard Strange is a Zelig-like figure whose presence has been felt in every corner of London’s cultural life. Now comes his solo show An Accent Waiting To Happen, an evening of songs, films clips, stories, readings and downright scurrilous gossip from his 40 years in the arts and entertainment world. Richard’s achievements and collaborations are manifold, from David Byrne to Marianne Faithfull, via Mike Figgis and Marc Almond. There’s very little Richard Strange hasn’t done!  Recent work has included being narrator and singing baritone in the UK premiere of Frank Zappa’s 200 Motels,  featured in Hal Willner’s concert Amarcord…Nino Rota, the Barbican tribute to Fellini’s composer, and collaborated on “Language Is A Virus From Outer Space”,  with the composer Gavin Bryars, a cantata based around the life and work of William Burroughs. And with career overview Perfect Past- The Complete Doctors of Madness, released to unanimous critical acclaim in May 2017 by Cherry Red Records, The Doctors of Madness have just returned from a hugely successful club tour of Japan.  His memoir, Strange- Punks and Drunks and Flicks and Kicks was published by Andre Deutsch in 2005. “Strange- Punks and Drunks and Flicks and Kicks” The press said : The Independent: “A seminal figure at the crossroads of art, music, film and counter-culture” The Tatler: “Richard Strange passes the kool acid test with psychedelic colours” Esquire: “A hilarious romp through the last 30 years of Pop Culture, as charming and amusing as the man himself” Time Out: “This extraordinary memoir is gloriously indiscreet”
