Wild Wally Request

Leave a comment

This Comment has just been added to a Post way back so you might not see it. I know nothing but maybe someone out there can help?

“Dear all, I’m trying to find out a bit more about Wild Wally’s Rock n Roll Show. Not sure if this is the same Wild Wally as the one who looms large in the legend of entertainments where I work (at Brunel University). If one and the same, which I suspect he may well be as he booked acts like Arthur Brown for Brunel’s legendary midnight raves up in town while a student here, his real name was Peter Saunders and – a few years ahead of Mr Bowie even – he appears to have (er hem) “seen gender as a somewhat fluid and arbitrarily arrived at state of affairs”…. (i.e. in the only pictures of him we’ve been able to trace, he’s wearing a dress.) If anyone knows anymore about Pete/Wild Wally or the RNR Show (or – pushing it here, I know – a band called The Symphonic Cucumber), can you drop me a line here: john.west@brunel.ac.uk (or tweet: @_johnnywest) Also, if anyone is interested, the rest of our research into Brunel’s place in rock history is here: https://brunelbands.wordpress.com/ Many thanks, John”
