Gig Description

Anoint My Head or… How I Failed To Make it as a Britpop Indie Rockstar – Andy Macleod returns to The Dublin Castle where he once rubbed shoulders with early performances by the awesome likes of Killers, Arctic Monkeys and The War On Drugs in the days of Club Fandango…but we’ve not invited Andy back to dissect nascent noughties popstars peccadilloes tonight, but rather his sweet own, as a guest of Book Club off the back of his critically acclaimed memoir…”It’s 1992 and Horace dreams of becoming a rockstar with his band the Pointy Birds. The only problem is that his day-job (mis)filing vinyl in a Soho record store is stealing all his time and energy, plus rival bands like Suede, Blur, Pulp and Radiohead are moving on to bigger and better things. But then someone called Ricky offers his services as a band manager and at last the dream can start. Anoint My Head is the tale of a band who didn’t become rich, or famous but had a manager who did. It is also the story of a musical era, and documents the rise of some of the biggest British Britpop bands of the nineties, plus a comedian who went on to write quite a successful sitcom about a paper merchants in Slough. A coming-of-age story about pursuing your dreams and what happens when reality gets in the way”…. This festive Book Club special will feature a Q And A with fellow Dublin Castle stalwart Tony Bugbear plus DJ action giving you the roots, shoots, fruits and cahoots of ‘Anoint My Head’ and a special surprise live set too…probably not Ricky Jervais in a billowing linen shirt…oh and the Macleod largesse is such that there may be mince pies available on the door, Happy Christmas, and remember A BOOK MAKES A GREAT GIFT!!
