Legendary progressive pop band Stackridge appear at Surrey's Windlesham Theatre on 7th December, providing a chance to see this ever-entertaining band in action.
Regarded as the missing jewel in the crown that is British pop music, Stackridge's history can be traced back over 40 years. In 1969 a disparate band of young musicians found common ground in the Bristol/Bath musical stew and gathered together in a group called 'Stackridge Lemon'. With a constant flow of changing line-ups, finally by late 1970 'Stackridge' (having dropped the 'Lemon') were Andy Davis, James Warren, 'Mutter' Slater, 'Crun' Walters, Mike Evans and Billy Sparkle. Already their somewhat eccentric mix of witty, often poignant lyrics, memorable melodies, extended instrumental passages and self effacing stage presentation was catching the attention of the Music Press and the live gig circuit.
It was this line-up that constantly toured the U.K. for the next three years, slowly building a fanatic following and releasing 3 Albums on M.C.A Records-the eponymous 'Stackridge', followed by 'Friendliness' and then in 1974 the George Martin-produced 'The Man in the Bowler Hat'. This triumphant masterpiece was regarded by many to be George Martin's finest creation outside of his Beatles canon. However, internal wrangles caused the band to spit in 1976.
Going their separate ways, the individuals continued to make music during the 1980's and 90's, James and Andy gaining noticeable success as Electro-Pop Balladeers The Korgis with two hit singles including the Warren-penned 'Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime' which was featured on the soundtrack of the Jim Carrey movie 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind'. Their songs have been covered by a variety of artists including Rod Stewart, Beck, Zucchero, Manhattan Transfer and Richard Thompson.
A revamped version of Stackridge was formed in the late 90's by Evans, Warren & Walters, and produced 1999's album 'Something for the Weekend'. Various line-up changes have followed in the subsequent years, but key performances at Glastonbury and the Cropredy festival to name a couple, have kept the Stackridge name in the public eye. In 2010 they made their American Television debut for The Craig Ferguson Late Late Show on CBS TV.
Recent tours have seen the band, including a number of original members, supported by a devoted and rapidly increasing fan base.
One of the most perfect voices I have ever heard!

I was completely bowled over by Roxanne. As well as performing, she converses with the audience, charming everyone in the room. If you ever get the chance to go and see her live - definitely do!
