Dr Glam Book launch and Event -Press Release

Press Release:
He's the Glam Rock renaissance man of our time, and a sparkling silver alien from a very shiny planet...
Simply, he's the most over the top performer that Dunedin has ever seen...

Dr. Glam beams down from the mothership once more in October to celebrate the launch of his first book, Glory Days: From Gumboots to Platforms. This time he's armed with even more sparkly stuff and sensationally shiny costumery than ever before...this time he brings you a GLAMSTRAVAGANZA!!!
At Dr. Glam's 'Freaks Cabaret' Fringe Festival performance earlier this year, Dunedin responded to the 'reinvent yourself' urgings of the Doc by turning up in wigs and glitter, spandex and space-wear.
This time, he wants MORE!!

Dr. Glam will showcase his wry and twisted brand of 'Dark Glam' followed by another blistering Glam Rock performance backed by Cap'n Dave and The Pirate Hookers. The Glam Rock Bagpiper will stop the show once more, the Belly-dancers will evoke oohs and aahs, and the lights, effects and glitter you have come to expect from a Dr Glam gig will be there in force!

Who is Dr Glam?

Dr Glam is also known as Ian Chapman, lecturer in contemporary music at Otago University. He's a musician, a freelance writer and New Zealand's foremost authorities on the glitzier bits of the 70s. With his Dr Glam stage persona, Ian celebrates Glam Rock's theatrical imagery, with full silver stage make-up and an ever-evolving wardrobe of space-age suits and platform boots.
Ian's first book is to be published by Harper Collins in October. Glory Days: from Gumboots to Platforms is an irreverent overview of NZ arts, culture and society in the 1970s, when platform shoes roamed the earth and polyester
ruled the catwalks.
