Vinny Peculiar (Friday 2nd October)

UK based musician and poet Vinny Peculiar [aka Alan Wilkes] has been variously described as – ‘An under sung national treasure’ [UNCUT Magazine 2014] – a warm hearted Morrissey [Q Magazine 2014] and the missing link between Jarvis Cocker and Roger McGough [Irish Times 2014]. He’s released eleven albums of outsider pop music to great critical acclaim and a new album release ‘Down The Bright Stream’ on his own Shadrack & Duxbury Records comes out March 30th 2015. Vinny comes from the north Worcestershire village of Catshill and enjoyed a methodist upbringing. The music of the church was his first love but Glam Rock soon put an end to all that. After flunking formal education and spending an eternity on the dole he trained as a nurse working working in long stay hospitals and developing mental health services in the community. He ended a long standing relationship with the NHS some years ago in search of everything he’s still looking for. Much of Vinnys work is autobiographical, songs are remarkably candid, honest, witty and laugh aloud absurd and at the same time poignant and self effacing, you really need to hear them.
