Wilko Johnson, guitarist and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, who has influenced everyone from Joe Strummer, Mick Jones to Steve Albini, Johnson will be accompanied by Norman Watt-Roy (bass guitar) and Dylan Howe (drums).
In 1971, Wilko first made his name when he formed Dr. Feelgood; a British pub rock band from Canvey Island, Essex. Known for their high energy live performances, their first two studio albums, Down by the Jetty (1974) and Malpractice (1975), proved immensely popular. Their 1976 breakthrough live album, Stupidity reached No.1 in the official UK album chart. By the time Dr. Feelgood released their fourth album, Sneakin’ Suspicion (1977), Johnson left the group to pursue a solo career. By 1980, Johnson joined Ian Dury and the Blockheads.
Recently Johnson featured in Julien Temple’s Oil City Confidential; a full-length feature film documentary about Dr. Feelgood, and has also of late been seen starring opposite Sean Bean as Royal Executioner Ser Illyn Payne in HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones, shown on Sky Atlantic television.
