Biography

After a 40 year break, and following a sell out UK tour 2022 Red Guitars are back with a special anniversary release and new album in the pipeline.

Red Guitars were a product of the vibrant Hull music scene of the 80s. Encouraged by a review of their demo tape in the Melody Maker the band recorded a single, Good Technology, and released it on their own Self Drive label. John Peel played it on the radio, Tyne Tees Television filmed them for the Tube and Johnny Marr invited them to tour with the Smiths. They were up and running. Good Technology made number 11 in John Peel’s Festive 50. Further singles Fact, Steeltown and Marimba Jive followed, and debut album Slow to Fade was released in November 1984.

40 years on, a chance phone call from promoters AEG forced the five original members to reunite for their 2022 Slow to Fade tour and now they are now playing better than ever and preparing to tour again.

“So much joy in the room for Red Guitars at the 100 Club London last night. Uplifting to see brilliant musicians playing together again after 38 years. Slow to fade, as the song says.” John Pullman

“What an extraordinary bunch of musicians Red Guitars. I will need my jaw rewiring after watching that. Utterly joyous. I am 17 again.” Steve M

“They were magnificent, Red Guitars, even better than I’d hoped for.” Rob Sim

“Friday evening with the fabulous Red Guitars at The 100 Club. I had waited 35 years for this tour and they did not disappoint!” Rob Telford

“I’ve been to hundreds of gigs over the years, but Red Guitars at The Adelphi Club tonight was one of the best. Amazing songs and musicians who seem to be loving being back on the stage playing them.” Mark Powell

“Wow! Red Guitars were absolutely brilliant tonight. 38 years since their last live show? Still got some amazing energy and a great bunch of songs.” jonnygarcon

“A triumphant return for Red Guitars with a wonderful gig at Old Woollen on the first date of their ‘Slow To Fade’ reunion tour. Stand out songs were ‘Slow To Fade’, ‘Fact’, ‘Steeltown’ and ‘Good Technology’. Terra Fin Music opened proceedings with a very enjoyable set … excellent evening of uplifting music.” Across the Universal Soundscape

Red Guitars full original line up, vocalist Jeremy Kidd, lead guitarist Hallam Lewis, drummer Matt Higgins, rhythm guitarist John Rowley and Lou Duffy-Howard on bass.
