Doctors of Madness
Plus Special Guests TBA
Tickets: £10 Adv
Exploding onto the pre-punk music scene in 1975, The Doctors of Madness are the missing link between Bowie and The Sex Pistols. Over the next three years they would tour with Be Bop Deluxe and offer support slots to young upstarts like The Jam and The Pistols. Dave Vanian of The Damned would be one of the rotating members.
Now, after 40 years, Richard ‘Kid’ Strange is hitting the road in support of the 3xCD boxed set of their entire back catalogue plus exclusive, never-before-heard bonus tracks including the one recorded with Dave Vanian. It’s released May 8th on Cherry Red Records.
‘When Ziggy shagged all of Amon Duul 2 at the Berlin premiere of A Clockwork Orange, their divine progeny was undoubtedly Richard ‘Kid’ Strange and The Doctors of Madness.’ Julian Cope
‘If you have never heard the Doctors of Madness, you should. Musically they are the Velvet Underground, New York Dolls with shades of glam, hippie, prog and punk all rolled into one, yet are still totally original. Vastly underrated, they should have been huge. Pure genius.’ Vic Reeves
Music Genres: Alternative, Punk
