An Evening with Richard Jobson (SKIDS) and Martin Metcalfe (Goodbye Mr Mackenzie)

Richard Jobson & Martin Metcalfe back in action in 2023

An amazing evening of “Songs & Stories” by two artists with over 110 years in the arts between them. Apart from writing the worldwide number one chart song “The Saints Are Coming” Richard is renowned as a great storyteller and raconteur, has directed 6 movies and hosted the Film Show for MTV. He has met the great the good (and the bad) in Hollywood and the music industry.


Martin has been around the block too with his bands Goodbye Mr Mackenzie & The Filthy Tongues and worked with the Talking Heads, written songs for Angelfish (Shirley Manson), The Skids, The Rezillos and others. He has been on tour with the likes of Blondie, The Ramones & Stiff Little Fingers. There will also be an FAQ and no question is off limits (apart from that one about Richard Jobson & Pans People… and the one about “Rock Stars In Their Underpants”).
