MARK MORRISS (THE BLUETONES)/ NIGEL CLARK (DODGY/CHRIS HELME (THE SEAHORSES)

Mark Morriss (The Bluetones)

Best known as the frontman in The Bluetones, Mark Morriss released his debut solo album Memory Muscle on June 2, 2008. Getting his hands dirty with his own set of songs has been an inspiring experience for Morriss, who started trying them out acoustically at open mic nights in London way back in 2004. 'I'd just turn up with my guitar, play five or six songs, along with everyone else. I didn't want any special favours, and just enjoyed the experience of stripping things right back down' - Morriss.

Chris Helme (The Seahorses) First rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire's post-Stone Roses band 'The Seahorses' released his brand new solo album on the 27th of August 2012. Still rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics 'Love Is The Law' and 'Blinded By The Sun' - songs that evoked everything the 90's stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance. Present day societal context may well in fact mirror those times but the man himself, now, appears cut from an entirely different cloth.

Helmes has an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it's his latest offering The Rookery's knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme's keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.

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.

Doors Open: 7.30pm Admission:£10 on the Door
