Reception[edit]

"Possibly the most famous person you've never heard of," reviewed Dan Carrier, Camden New Journal, in April, 2013.[6] "The Promoter makes clear that boring is perhaps the one thing this 56-year-old is not. Documenting his past infamy as a nightclub promoter who could have shocked Iggy Pop into sobriety, director Ed Edwards also captures the modern-day Pereno at a creative peak, before disaster inevitably strikes," said - Alex Bellotti of the Hampstead & Highgate Express, 16 May 2013.[7]
