Richard Strange’s One Man Show

RS-one man show

“An Accent Waiting To Happen”

A collection of songs, stories, reading, film clips and downright scurrilous gossip, from a man who has been a major cultural influence in Britain since 1975. A man who, uniquely, has worked as a musician, performance artist, composer, writer, actor, curator and educator.

With support from the wonderful, golden-voiced Lily Bud

“In my Version of Rock History, Richard Strange looms a lot larger than Pete Townsend”
Paul Morley

“18 years after first meeting him, just thinking about Richard still reduces me to a state of near hysteria…and terror. He restores one’s faith in the ability of the human spirit to soar.”
James Nesbitt

“Strange must surely be the funniest man in London…It is impossible to spend any time within his looming majesty without being engulfed in gales of health-inducing mirth and a sense of fraternal bohemian bonhomie long lost to our crassly commercial times.”
Adrian Dannatt

“If you have never heard (Richard Strange’s band) the Doctors of Madness, you should. Musically they are the Velvet Underground, New York Dolls with shades of glam, hippie, prog and punk all rolled into one, yet are still totally original. Vastly underrated, they should have been huge. Pure genius”
Vic Reeves

“When Ziggy shagged all of Amon Duul 2 at the Berlin premiere of “A Clockwork Orange”, their divine progeny was undoubtedly Richard “Kid” Strange”
Julian Cope

“Strange is perhaps the only figure alive who has traversed so many art, performance and music movements. He can really understand the complex interplay between the elements of glamour, trash, provocation and outrage within British culture for the last 30 years. This book is the least academic, but most intelligent and entertaining analysis one could hope to read of a very specific London milieu, whose ramifications and rewards extend across the Western world.”
The Art Newspaper

“A seminal figure at the crossroads of art, music, film and counter-culture”
The Independent

“hilarious romp through the last 30 years of Pop Culture, as charming and amusing as the man himself”
Esquire

“This extraordinary memoir is gloriously indiscreet”
Time Out

“Strange is a cultured, gregarious chap who moves through London’s gilded salons observing his peers’ foibles. He observes the glitterati with a witty eye.”
Mojo

“What a life!”
Robert Elms

“An extraordinary memoir of an extraordinary life”
Jools Holland

“A good read. Wonderfully funny and well written.”
George Melly

“A fantastic read. Wit and truth writ large.”
Peter Curran

“The Doctors of Madness were the best! Blue hair, sequinned eyelids, a guitar that spelled out “KID”, space-age vaudeville that tipped this 16-year old kid over the edge! One of the most original songwriters & performers of my generation.”
Joe Elliott (Def Leppard)

“Richard Strange is a diamond geezer”
Shane McGowan

“Richard is the best gargoyle in town”
Sam Taylor-Wood

“Richard Strange can do most things with a maniacal twist, and most cleverly, with unmatched originality: he can sing, write songs, he can act, he can show off like a six year old and he has the most dangerous sense of hilarity, sustainable in moments of deepest solemnity.”
James Fox (White Mischief, Keith Richards etc)

Book

Strange: Punks and Drunks and Flicks and Kicks- Richard’s autobiography

“Strange is perhaps the only figure alive who has traversed so many art, music and performance movements. He can really understand the complex interplay between the elements of glamour, trash, provocation and outrage within British culture of the last 30 years. For anyone interested in such a theme, this is the least academic but the most intelligent and entertaining analysis one could hope to read of a London milieu whose ramifications and rewards extend across the Western world.”
5 Stars

“It’s hard to think of a fabulous party or gig in the past four decades this man didn’t make. Self-effacing and sharply witty. A master story teller makes you feel like an intimate friend as he takes you on a fantastical backstage tour of London’s throbbing, schizophrenic night lives. A must-read for rock wannabees.”
5 Stars

“This book is like taking an epic journey with a man driven by demons. So beautifully and sensitively written, it takes the reader through every aspect of Pop-Culture of the last thirty years. Beatlemania,Psychedelia, Punk, New Romantics, New Cabaret, Britart, The Theatre, “Batman” and “Gangs of New York”, Strange has been involved in them all, to a lesser or greater degree.
But it is not just the socio-cultural stuff that makes this book a “Must-Have”, it is simply one of the funniest books ever written too. Wanna know what Kim Basinger is REALLY like? Or The Sex Pistols? Or Princess Diana? Or what it’s like to work with Martin Scorsese?It’s ALL here! Buy it!”

“The Doctors of Madness-now THERE was a band” Simple Minds

“Best band I’ve ever seen or heard, simple as that, all these years later, the music takes me to a special place, no other band or act have ever come close….”

“Wow what an amazing DVD, absolute magic, well worth waiting….. over thirty five years for. Thank you Richard Strange !!!”

“Hi Richard, just received and watched There, then, now, always, bought as a surprise for me by a friend-  thank you, so many great memories, and feeling of being young again!! Felt like walking down Wardour st again!! Haha,thank you once again…”

“Brilliant – this is fantastic. In 1976 I’d probably been to a handful of gigs. Having never heard or seen anything of them before DoM became the first band to totally blow me away. This video will be a step back 35 years … here we are the 50s kids on collision course with … it doesn’t bear thinking about.”
