Talented, successful, creative and prone to the odd
128-hour binge? Music critic and Quietus
founder John Doran turned his popular MENK column for Vice into Jolly Lad: a brilliant
memoir about his attempts to deal with being a recovering alcoholic, curb his
enthusiasm for narcotics and take control of his fluctuating mental health. He
talks to Little Atoms' Caroline Christie about why the music business and
drugs seem inextricably linked, when partying goes wrong and how even the worst
of times has a great soundtrack.
Please note this event differs from the printed programme. Simon Mason has been replaced by Caroline Christie.
