Spokesperson Luther Bhogal-Jones explained, “The Defining Ten is where an artist/creative is invited to take us on a point-to-point musical journey of the tracks that got them to where they are today. today.
“It could be the first song they remember, the first purchase, the first song they learned to play, the song that opened doors, the song that closed doors, a song that inspired and drove to a new musical direction.
“So expect a variety of tracks from themselves and other artists. These tracks will be played in turn – on vinyl, CD or streaming – and discussed with the artist.
“Then, the evening will end with a unique performance and the chance to meet the artist afterwards.
“On Thursday February 24, we are very pleased to bring Terry Edwards to Worthing. As an in-demand multi-instrumentalist and session player, he’s played with some of the biggest and coolest names in the world – PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Beck, Siouxsie Sioux, Julian Cope, Spiritualized, Glen Matlock and Madness. . He was a member of The Higsons (Charlie Higson’s band that would later rise to fame on The Fast Show) and a longtime member of blues cacophonists Gallon Drunk. As a leader he also co-founded BUtterfield 8, Terry Edwards and the Scapegoats and his current superb jazz trio, the Near Jazz Experience.
“On Thursday March 24, we are honored to bring Jack Hues to Worthing. As the leader of the duo WANG CHUNG, he had huge success in the 80s with the huge worldwide singles Dancehall Days and Everybody Have Fun Tonight. He was the only guest composer to work twice with William Friedkin (The French Connection, The Exorcist, Sorcerer) on the films To Live And Die In LA and The Guardian. In the 90s he worked with Tony Banks (Genesis) on the Strictly Inc project. In recent years he has collaborated with Canterbury psychic group Syd Arthur and released his acclaimed solo debut Primitive in 2020 and his locking album Electro Acoustic Work 20:20 last year. With a career that has taken him from Gillingham to the Royal College of Music, Los Angeles, around the world and back to the UK, Jack’s Defining Ten journey is sure to be fascinating.
