Dr Feelgood

Andy Childs, ZigZag, August 1975

THIS INTERVIEW TOOK place in Wilko's front room. Obviously tired and weary from the extensive Naughty Rhythms Tour, which still had three gigs to run, Wilko didn't career around the room like an amphetamised dalek, he just talked quietly, deliberately, and with a sense of humour that he rarely exhibits onstage. An extremely pleasant bloke to meet. Afterwards, Lee, Chris, their able accountant, and myself went out on the piss and stayed up till some ridiculous hour in the morning listening to old Muddy Waters' records, but that's another story.
