The hugely anticipated and extremely long awaited new album from Wilko Johnson, his first album of all new material in 30 years.
The former Dr Feelgood guitarist from Canvey Island was diagnosed in late 2012 with terminal pancreatic cancer. However, despite the doctors’ worst predictions, he continued to perform with a new lust for life and even made the most successful album of his career, the gold-selling ‘Going Back Home’ with the legendary Roger Daltrey.
Following that album’s remarkable success he announced that thanks to a third opinion from a doctor moonlighting as a rock photographer and life-saving surgery, he was now cancer-free. With customary humour Wilko Johnson said of this late-career resurgence: “Man, there’s nothing like being told you’re dying to make you feel alive”.
