Catch punk star Ed Tudor-Pole at New Continental

Have your say

Singer. Musician. Movie star. TV presenter. Mr Ed Tudor-Pole has done it all.

From performing Who Killed Bambi? and The Great Rock n’ Roll Swindle on the film of the same name, through appearing in the likes of Game of Thrones and Harry Potter, to storming the charts with his band Tenpole Tudor.

Catch him at The Continental in 2015 for a fabulously intimate live solo set, with special guest supports.

If you think that punk music should be like a McDonald’s burger, i.e. utterly predictable, then your view differs from Ed’s.

“The spirit of punk has always been there – it’s something to do with rebellion, like Jerry Lee Lewis or Keith Richards. Just happens that in 1976 they named this spirit ‘Punk’!” says Ed.

He was glad to find out what he was at last, for he’d been playing guitar and trying to write great songs in that spirit since he was a boy, long before 1976 came along.

“Punk is an attitude, not a form of music, ask Steve Jones!” says Tudor-Pole. “At the moment I’m trying to see how much excitement can be generated with a man, a guitar, and an audience. If you have to label what I play, call it rock’n’ roll.”

Doors open at 8pm on Friday, April 17. Tickets are £8 and are available online from Skiddle, SEE or WeGotTickets.
