About the High Priest

Just before the 2008 global recession plunged the world into an economic nightmare and Britain’s got Talent aired around the same time, bringing its bland dumbed-down entertainment nightmare first to the UK and then exporting it to rest of the world, the High Priest was donning the collar and stepping onto a stage in a different church from what he was previously inhabited, the Windmill pub in the back streets of Brixton, overshadowed by the prison, for the first time since his expulsion from the church, to preach and rant through the mediums of comedy and music.

 

With a taste for alcohol, particularly wine, blessed or not, a flair for the use of profanity, an insatiable lascivious carnal desire for the naked flesh, mainly his flock, combined with a loss of faith due to taking a true look around the world and witnessing God’s work: Rape, genocide, torture, murder… and Gary Barlow, the High Priest creates an unsafe space in his new churches: pubs and clubs, dissecting and attacking any subject at will.

 

In a world run by the masters of mankind, the 0.5 percent, where fear runs through the streets and the digital alleyways of social networks, where the populations drown in their own conformity, the High Priest from the Deep South of England, Folkestone twinned with Alabama, to London and beyond, to Edinburgh and New York has delivered services, spread the word and shined a light on the hypocrisies, the untruths and the odd realities we have created as humans. As many have said after a service, “you spoke what we were too afraid to say.”

 

So are you ready to feel the love?

Are you ready to be touched deep inside?

Are you ready to see God? Well, kind of, I’m still not sure if one exists… One word: Gary Barlow
