Brian Appleton

RBM presents Brian Appleton’s History of the World in 3 Darts Selly Oak’s most bitter man, rock musicologist and part-time lecturer in Media studies returns! after a lengthy absence. Brian has an unfortunate personal history as the Nearly Man of pop - always coming up with brilliantly innovative ideas, only to see them snatched away by some passing pop wannabe. Brian will be looking into some major historical moments and characters to provide answers to questions that even Horrible Histories’ writer Terry Deary couldn’t fathom! He’ll also perform some of his greatest hits like My Turn To Be Poorly– the song that Brian claims inspired Morrisey to create The Smiths. Brian is the creation of Graham Fellows – the man behind comedy legend John Shuttleworth. His own place in rock history was secured in 1978 when he wrote and recorded the punk classic Jilted John. An inspired creation...SPINAL TAP watch your back The Irish Times A subtle dark compelling invention. banal, funny and fascinating all at the same time The Guardian
