Stackridge – The Final Bow Tour. Prog Rock, Psych, Beatlesque Power Pop, Folk or even the precursors of Britpop ? And that’s not even including their early 80’s skinny tie, new wave stint in the UK and USA Top Twenties as The Korgis !
Either way James Warren & Andy Davis aka Stackridge are an unmissable live act with a pedigree that stretches to over 40 years of eccentric, perfect quintessentially English Music. Aided and abetted by long serving musicians Glenn Tommey , Eddie John and the “Scottish Firebrand” Clare Lindley they embark on their last ever tour this autumn.
Your last chance to see the band who the BBC’s Stuart Maconie described as “truly timeless and uncategorisable”.
Stackridge constantly tour the U.K with new material and songs from their classic 1970’s British pop albums: “Stackridge”, “Friendliness” and the George Martin produced “The Man in the Bowler Hat” – regarded by many to be George Martin’s finest creation outside of his Beatles canon. Elton John signed them to his own Rocket Records and released two more albums “Extravaganza” and “Mr.Mick”.
Stackridge performed at the first ever Glastonbury Festival, were a favourite band of the late John Peel and were voted fourth in the Melody Maker’s Brightest Hope Poll – above Genesis and Wings!
Since they reformed they have not only delighted their faithfull followers from the 1970’s ( who though they would never see their favourite band again), but they have gained a new following of younger fans , in particular young musicians who cite them as being a huge influence.
