Blue Orchids (Ex Fall)

Manchester's legendary Blue Orchids are back!
Christened the Blue Orchids by John Cooper Clarke, they formed in 1979 when Martin Bramah left The Fall after recording the debut album Live At The Witch Trials.

They signed to Rough Trade Records in 1980 and were championed by the late great John Peel, before touring with Echo & The Bunnymen and then The Velvet Underground's Nico, serving as both backing group and support act.
Over the years Blue Orchids have included in their line up members of The Smiths, The Durutti Column, The Fall and Buzzcocks.

Martin Bramah reformed the band last year for John Peel Day events in London, Liverpool and Manchester and it's the classic Rough Trade era recordings that the band is now playing at their live shows, to great acclaim.
'It's been great to breath new life into these songs again after so long - they're sounding so fresh and original, I could have written them all yesterday!' - Martin Bramah 2012.

Don't miss the chance to see this seminal act play their stunning live set of sonic gems!
