Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie (12A)

Tuesday, 20 June 2017 - 7:15pm

 

To celebrate our visit from the great man himself on Friday 23rd June we offer you OTWAY THE MOVIE

 

In Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie, a movie funded entirely by his fans, UK’s cult legend John Otway returns to his old school to give a course on survival in the music industry.
 
In the midst of Britain’s 70s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts. Too bad his next HIT was 25 years later.
 
 
John Otway’s career is an educational, yet magical lesson in self-promotion... recruiting his fans for endless manipulative, over-the-top projects which, among others, garnered him status as The Nation’s 7th Favorite Lyricist in a BBC poll, secured him a Top Ten HIT for his 50th birthday and a feature movie for his 60th.
 
Failure has its rewards. It’s kept Otway in the spotlight for 35 years.
 
 
Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie is screened at The Continental on Tuesday 20th June 2017. Doors at 7.15pm for as 7.30pm film start. 
 

Tickets are £4 (advance or on the door) and are available online now from SEE Tickets, WeGotTickets & Skiddle
