TERRY AND GERRY

After 27 years the Birmingham based cult skiffle cow-punk band Terry and Gerry are reforming for a tour in honour of their biggest fan, the late John Peel. They will be playing all over the country in February/March 2017

BBC disc jockey and avid fan John Peel promoted the band when apparently by chance he picked out their demonstration tape because his wife’s best friends were also known as Terry and Gerry. He thought the coincidence was too great to ignore! The band recorded four critically acclaimed sessions for the John Peel show and got a very fond mention in his autobiography.

In the mid-eighties the four piece band released six singles and one album. ‘From Lubbock to Clintwood East’: Each went to Number One in the indie charts. Reviewing their single on Radio One Morrissey declared ‘I love it!! Don’t know why!!’ The band toured extensively in the UK, Europe and America gathering fans from Joe Strummer of ‘The Clash’ to Shane MacGowan from ‘The Pogues’.

Terry and Gerry regularly appeared on radio and TV, including sessions for ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ and ‘The Tube’, they wrote numerous theme tunes for Central TV and were the subject of a 30 minute documentary by the legendary film maker Norman Hull, which aired on British Television in July 1986.

Still as energetic and vibrant as ever they continue to chronicle the lives of the people from the city they love, Birmingham.

SOK Cover 2.jpg

25th Anniversary of Pele's 'Sport Of Kings'.

2018 will be the 25th anniversary of the 2nd (and final) Pele album 'The Sport Of Kings'. Longer and more expansive than the debut many hard core Pele fans will tell you it's their favourite out of the two Pele studio albums.

Made at Rockfield Studios by legendary producer Jon Kelly (Prefab Sprout, Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Deacon Blue, The Beautiful South) the album contains classics such as Fat Black Heart, Understanding Sadness & Beside the Fields as well as Don't Worship me & Land of The Free (hits in Holland & Belgium).

Huge live favourites Name & Number and the archetypal Pele showstopper, The Pain of A Drinking Song also feature.

To celebrate the album will be remastered and re-released and a full UK tour undertaken.

Ian and the band will play a classic 1993 Pele set featuring plenty of Sport Of Kings era songs, Fireworks tunes as well as Amsterdam & solo favourites.
