Ed Tudor Pole ecstatic in performance
Ed Tudor Pole

Edward Tudor-Pole has the distinction of playing the first ever show hosted under the banner of the Wild Hare Club.  It was, as ever the case with Ed, a dramatic performance, encompassing not only his greatest hit, the much loved Swords of a Thousand Men but also a great Keith Richards cover where it became apparent that he had taken in every nuance of Keef’s on stage performance from having watched numerous Stones shows.

Equally rooted in the rockin’ rhythms of Chuck Berry and the history of ‘this sceptred isle’, there’s nobody else that I know quite like him. He first came to my attention in the film The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, singing Who Killed Bambi? He then went on to score three hits with Ten Pole Tudor before next coming into prominence hosting The Crystal Maze. Since then he’s appeared in numerous films including playing the part of Spike Milligan in The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.

Ed doesn’t really do new-fangled media and doesn’t have a website, but on occasion, if the mood suits him, he will pen a most entertaining letter in a splendid italic script. Ed Tudor Pole is truly a man out of time.

When Richard Met Debbie

Everybody knows the story of my meeting with Patti Smith but she’s not the only one of the artists of the New York underground scene of the late 1970s who I’ve met. Yes, of the CBGB centred scene-makers, I’ve also talked to John Cale and Richard Hell, exchanged grunts with Tom Verlaine and hung with Lenny Kaye. OK I confess to having engineered these encounters, mainly by blagging my way backstage, but my coming face-to-face with the Queen of NYC cool, Debbie Harry, that was totally unexpected.
