Former Doctor of Madness Richard Strange guests

Former Doctor of Madness Richard Strange guests, playing his favourite records and talking Jools through the Strangest of careers.

Strange is one of the great unsung heroes of British rock music, always in the right place but often just slightly before the right time. His best known band, the Doctors of Madness, imploded just before the punk explosion that would have made them stars, after which he created the Cabaret Futura, a crucial spawning ground for the nascent New Romantic movement.

As an actor, he has made films with the likes of Martin Scorsese and Tim Burton (as well as appearing in a Harry Potter!) and on stage with Marianne Faithfull, Tom Waits & William Burroughs.
