Local band supports The Bluetones at King Georges Hall 22/7/2011

5th July 2011

Categories: Town Centre News

Local band The Cassini Club have been chosen to support The Bluetones at their farewell tour gig in Blackburn. The gig takes place at King Georges Hall on 22nd July 7pm with tickets priced at £12 advance.

The Bluetones formed in 1993 in Hounslow, London and after 17 years ago together, and 6 albums, the band have decided to call it a day, but not before heading out on one last tour as a chance to say farewell and thank you to all their fans. The concert will be a "Greatest Hits/ Best of" style set.

Featuring Adam Devlin on guitar, Eds Chesters on drums, Scott Morriss on bass and Mark Morriss on vocals, they set out to conquer the world writing songs in an improvised studio fashioned from a damp and leaky garage in the garden of a house they all shared at the time.

It was in 1994 that the band first started to generate interest outside of their circle of friends, thanks in no small part to Radio 1 dj John Peel picking up on a limited edition blue-vinyl pressing of a song called ‘Slight Return’ that the band were selling at their gigs.

In 1995 they released there first 2 singles on their own Superior Quality Recordings label, ‘Are You Blue Or Are You Blind?’ and ‘Bluetonic’. Both singles broke into the UK Top 40, but it was the (re)release of Slight Return in January 1996 that really catapulted the group into the public eye, reaching No. 2 in the charts.

Cassini Club have recently featured on the local ‘BBC Introducing’ show, which allowed for their track ‘Stand As One’ to be shared with music lovers across the North West, who may not have been able to make it to their gigs or whom are dedicated to finding new bands and emerging talent.
