"On the evening of 10 March 2013, Koko in London s Camden Town opened its doors to 1,500 music fans who knew they were about to witness an extraordinary event. The venue known as the Music Machine in the punk days and the Camden Palace in the 80s and 90s has down the years seen many legends play its stage, from Ellen Terry the Victorian actress, to The Goons who recorded some of their BBC shows there, to The Clash, Madonna, Prince and many more. But tonight the honour was reserved for a man with a special place in the hearts of lovers of raw, honest, exhilarating rock n roll music: Wilko Johnson.
The electricity around the show had acquired extra voltage due to a sad and poignant fact: just a few weeks before, the former Dr Feelgood guitarist and songwriter had announced he d been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had only months left to live. The Koko gig the second of two was thus promoted as the very last show of a short Farewell tour, the final chance for fans to see Wilko perform live on stage. As it turned out, against the odds, the guitarist mercifully remained fit and healthy enough to gig sporadically throughout the rest of 2013, bringing pleasure to fans everywhere from his home town of Southend, Essex to the Fuji Rock festival in Japan. But on this crisp winter s evening in Camden Town, no one was to know that and even if they did, they would be glad to learn that Wilko s party wasn t quite over yet...
Wilko came onstage to a deafening roar and a standing ovation (not that there was anywhere to sit down). The next hour and 20 minutes rushed by, with Wilko, glaring, grinning, and manically bowling across the stage in customary style, as Norman Watt-Roy pulled funkily at his bass strings and Dylan Howe kept the rhythm tight ( he s the best drummer I ve ever worked with, says Wilko and he s worked with more than a few very good ones). The Feelgoods hits got the biggest cheer, and then a tear came to the collective eye when Johnson left the stage to an emotional rendering of Chuck Berry s Bye Bye Johnny, waving as he said goodbye - a profoundly moving experience, it must be said, whose atmosphere Live At Koko perfectly captures."

This superbly shot and brilliantly edited 83-minute set, filmed in London in March 2013, finds the maestro magnificently backed by Norman Watt-Roy and Dylan Howe (his best rhythm section since the original Feelgoods), not so much cheating mortality as laughing maniacally in its face whilst rocking harder than any 60-something geezer under a death sentence has any right to...owners of Oil City Confidential should immediately reserve some shelf space right next to it - 9/10 --Charles Shaar Murray, Classic Rock
The red and black Telecaster spits riffs, the angular figure shimmies robotically and barks the familiar Thames Delta news...this is a definitive showcase of Wilko's unique talents, with the love from the crowd tangible - 9/10 --Neil Spencer, Uncut, March 2014

I've been attending live Wilko (& Norman) shows for about 30 years and I've seen him play so many crummy pubs in front of 80 people and think "why isn't this band playing bigger venues??"
Well this dvd filmed in front of a crowd of 1500 people is a great testament to a live Wilko gig.
The raw energy and emotion are captured very well, it sounds great (especially played LOUD!)
I will treasure this dvd and I know I'll return to it again and again in years to come.
Best live band I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot.
The real bonus, of course, is that Wilko himself is still around to see the realease which was not expected at the time of the show but which makes me very happy indeed.
Also, her birthday is in 4 days time - Monday 23rd February 2015 and this is why I purchased it.
Thank you Fulfillment Express and Amazon.co.uk for your swift and reliable service.
The extras are just as irresistible to see as the concert, with sees the whole band in great form.
It is a must buy for any Wilko / Feelgood fan...Worth every penny!
