I met Dik (AKA Kid Strange) in Abbey Road studios at various Roy Harper sessions and got to know him quite well. Back in the mid-seventies, they were an eccentric proto-punk band with their electric violin and interesting lyrics.
They built up quite a following in the UK and Japan and for a time it looked as if they were going to be really big.
Richard went on to do a number of things in film and a weird fashionable nightclub. I recently organised and promoted a solo gig for him in Hull.
So today I’m playing the three albums and nefarious other CDs of the Doctors of Madness!!
