One of the artists I saw five times in the UK, culminating with meeting him in person in the Union at Leeds, was the amazing and unique John Otway! Otway is 100% the type of act you need to see live. I saw him four times in London at various pubs and smaller venues and each time it was just so much fun. His big commercial hit of course was “Cor Baby That’s Really Free” but every song he performed live was just solid entertainment I have not seen the like of since. He even sang one of my Top Ten Punk Slow Songs: Geneve.
I remember when he first came on Top Of The Pops it was almost as important as the first time I heard Anarchy in The UK by the Sex Pistols. Go John!
