Pete Atkin

Tickets: Music Deal £23.50 Ticket Only £4.00


“Funny, sad, beautiful, true” – that’s how Stephen Fry described the songs of Pete Atkin and Clive James, the songs they continued to write together ever since they met in the 1960s.

A new album by Pete Atkin has always been a special event, and The ​ Luck Of The Draw is a special special event. It’s Pete’s first new collection of their songs since Clive died in 2019, and it includes previously unrecorded treasures and collectors’ items, as well as terrific new versions of several of their old favourites such as the legendary 'Have You Got A Biro I Can Borrow?', for instance, and the ultimate song for movie fanatics, 'Screen-Freak'.

Pete’s music and Clive’s lyrics have never fitted in to the fashions of the day, which is perhaps one reason why they have lasted so well, and why audiences still love to hear Pete sing them live.

For this album, Pete put together a superb backing band which includes some of the best musicians in the country.

If you’ve never heard Pete and Clive's songs before, the result will surprise and delight you – and if you’re a long-term fan, you will not be disappointed as you add this new classic to your collection.
