A Little Night Reading

Your Dad

Hello fans of top turn Your Dad, described by Phil Rickman on the BBC Wales Arts Blog as ‘almost legendary.’

Here are all the useful clips gathered in one yummy web page!

For example, here we are performing part of our legendary ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ show.

And here’s a not brilliantly filmed, yet worth watching clip of us making the whole audience join the band. If you’ve ever joined Your Dad, please let us know. We love to stay in touch with band members.

This is also filmed on someones phone late at night at a wild hippy do out on the Somerset Levels, but the sounds pretty good, and it does give a flavour of the alternative extended Sugar Sugar ending. The late great Charlie Wrighton, for many years patron of Goose Hall, the Glastonbury Festival Workers Cafe, can be seen lurching about in a pink suit in the background.

And finally! Your Dad making the other rappers look like babies.

This is us at the Frost Fair in Glastonbury, December 2012, with our wonderful version of ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.’

Here’s some journalism I did about the Your Dad Experience.

Here’s a bit from The Observer, outlining some of the perils of singing in public houses.

And here’s one from The Telegraph, about the excitements of being at the bottom of the bill at Glastonbury. They call me Ian Mercher, which is a new one.

Here’s a couple of solo things, in case you’re looking for a compere/after dinner speaker etc.

This is me ranting on the Rude Health soapbox at Abergavenny Food Festival 2012.

This is a compilation of me compering stuff from Sheep Music in Presteigne 2002.

If you would like to talk about us doing a gig, please call Chas on 01524 400696, or email me here, ian@ianmarchant.com
