  James Maker - Autofellatio

Friday 28th July, 7pm

Autofellatio is the memoir of singer, lyricist, writer and occasional actor James Maker. It begins with his teenage years in punk-era London, moving through the counter-cultural 1980s with an account of the indie group Raymonde and his association with pop artist, Morrissey. Visiting the adventures of rock group RPLA, the filming of "Middleton's Changeling", and the party years of the 1990s, it closes with his relocation to, and observations on, life in Spain.

Free event, starts at 7pm.
