Gig Description

I Was The King of Spain: ‘Somewhere between Spike Milligan and Al Murray..’ Author Griff Griffiths writes with a candour and honesty that makes his escapades totally compelling, taking his audience on a literary rollercoaster that prompts in them a raft of emotions. A lifelong mental health sufferer – at one time being institutionalised believing he was indeed the king of Spain – Griff’s stories include… a bizarre drug deal involving Beatles photographer Bob Freeman and Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant in a Marrakech street market! Sexual encounters with one of Kid Creoles Coconuts! Business dealings with the Krays, breaking up a fight with 80s heart-throb, Rick Astley, to saving the life of one of the rap duo Salt-n-Pepa at a London Smash Hits party! Griffiths also co-produced and directed the documentary Are They Hostile?, a gritty feature length documentary on the Croydon Punk, and New Wave scene between 1977 to 1980 featuring crucial bands such as The Bad Actors, The Straps, The Daleks and The Marines. Tony Bugbear is in conversation with Griff about this acclaimed book (published by Olympia) tonite, with an audience Q and A to follow. Books will be on sale, to be signed by Griff, meet the author and  acaimed 365 Radio  drivetime Host,  have a chat, take some selfies and enjoy a DJ set reflecting the book’s remarkable contents. And that’s not all, because the evening get’s topped off with performances by both Griff’s current bands… Circa79, drummer Griff’s very own punk covers band, latest in a succession of ace outfits to feature our man’s talents- with the tantalising tagline, Punk and New Wave for the masses. AND! Ghosts…Griff is Rick Buckler all the way for this one, superb Jam tribute act that they are. DJ Fuzz will keep the party going til 2am.
