We’re very pleased to present ANDREW O’NEILL’S HISTORY OF HEAVY METAL to the Sugarmill on Friday 22nd Sept.

(Oc)cult comedian/ writer/ musician Andrew O’Neill will be performing a show, part stand-up, part gig based on his upcoming book of the same title.

The history of heavy metal brings brings us extraordinary stories of larger-than-life characters living to excess, from the household names of Ozzy Osbourne, Lemmy, Iron Maiden and Metallica, to the brutal notoriety of the underground Norwegian black metal scene and the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. It is the story of a worldwide network of rabid fans escaping everyday mundanity through music, of cut-throat corporate arseholes ripping off those fans and the bands they worship to line their pockets. The expansive pantheon of heavy metal musicians includes junkies, Satanists and murderers, born-again Christians and teetotallers, stadium-touring billionaires and toilet-circuit journeymen.
