"This Will Explain Everything"
published by Melbourne Books - release date - late May
Jeff Duff is arguably the most flamboyant, creative and controversial entertainer Australia has produced. His musical gifts and fantastical androgynous performances parallel the artistry of David Bowie. While Duffo's career kicked off in the 1970s, he continues to grow as an artist, creating new music and performing sell-out concerts to this day.
In his tell-all memoir, dedicated to Bowie, Duffo shares his tales of life, love and rock'n'roll, in what is a rollicking, entertaining read. From his childhood desire to wear a dress, to performing before violent London punk crowds, to being banned and arrested, and even his journey into the depths of despair, Duffo recalls all with flair and style.
Come and be part of Australian music history as Jeff launches this lavish 248 page hardcover book with this totally unique night at the Basement - a book launch like no other you have ever attended with lots of special guests, surprises galore and a celebratory performance from Jeff and his band.
