I saw these guys on Geordie Scene in the early 70s and was hooked immediately. What
a revelation. Bought the LP the following day and never looked back. Have followed
Feelgood and Wilko ever since. After a health scare Wilko is still gigging and as
good as ever. Feelgood are still touring, too -
Going to Feelgood & Wilko gigs it was always mainly guys of my age, but since the film Oil City Confidential the tickets are harder to get hold of, it’s a bigger crowd, a younger crowd and there are more women in the crowd. It introduced Feelgood and Wilko to a whole new audience. And since Wilko’s health battle he’s been elevated to the status of a national treasure.
There are still some albums I haven’t got ...
If you get chance try and see the brilliant Oil City Confidential -
