Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band on Saturday 15th December 2018
Michael Head will play a hometown performance at the Grand Central Hall in Liverpool on Saturday 15th December 2018. Once described by the New Musical Express (NME) as a ‘lost genius and among the most gifted songwriters of his generation’, his live performances attract a truly partisan fan base and create immediate converts for anyone new to his music.
Michael Head is an effortless and deeply soulful songwriter forming his first band, The Pale Fountains, with his younger brother John in the early 1980s. After releasing two albums for Virgin, he formed his second band, Shack, in 1986 and they managed released five critically acclaimed albums including Waterpistol in 1995 and HMS Fable for London Records in 1999. In 1997 he released what is arguably his most acclaimed and accomplished album to date, The Magical World Of The Strands, under the name of Michael Head & The Strands. In 2013 he formed Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band and released the 2017 album Adiós Señor Pussycat, thereby attaining further critical acclaim and a number one position on the Independent Albums Chart.
Michael Head: “Personally this is a gig I'm really looking forward to. Grand Central Hall on Renshaw Street is an important building in a part of town which has featured large in the lives of lots of kids growing up in Liverpool over the years. On entering the empty venue the other day I was struck with excitement and possibilities: Christmas, Liverpool, Grand Central Hall, a full house, a big stage, the Red Elastic Band...Yeah, come on, let's have it.”
Matt Lockett, co-founder of Violette explained: “This show at Grand Central Hall is one which we have been working on for some time. It's a Victorian, psychedelic circus of a place - possibly the perfect venue for Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band.”
He added: “We're also really please to be working with Harvest Sun Promotions on the event. Tom is a kindred spirit in his love and belief in great music and his legacy involving Mick and John Head make Harvest Sun the perfect partner.”
