The Defining Ten is where an artist/creative is invited to take us on a musical dot to dot journey of the tracks which have led them to who they are today. These could be the first song they have a memory of, first purchase, first song they learnt to play, the track which opened doors, the track which closed doors, a track which inspired and lead to a new musical direction – so expect a variety of tracks from themselves and other artists. We will play these tracks in turn and discuss them, with the evening ending with a unique performance and chance to meet the artist afterwards.
For our March event we are very excited to bring to Worthing JACK HUES – as frontman for duo WANG CHUNG he enjoyed massive success in the 80s with the huge global singles “Dancehall Days” and “Everybody Have Fun Tonight.” He was the only composer asked to work twice with William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist, Sorcerer) scoring the films To Live And Die In L.A and The Guardian. In the 90s he worked with Tony Banks (Genesis) on the Strictly Inc project. In the last few years he has collaborated with Canterbury psych act Syd Arthur and released his acclaimed debut solo album “Primitif” in 2020 and his “lockdown” album Electro Acoustic Work 20:20 last year.
With a career which has taken him from Gillingham to the Royal College of Music, on to LA, around the world and back to the UK Jack’s Defining Ten journey will definitely be a fascinating one! Afterwards he will be performing a special solo acoustic set of classic hits, new material and a few surprises as well!
If you can’t make it and would still like a signed cd or vinyl with personalised message (with free delivery in Worthing) please see the event page.
