90s Legends – three brit pop legends, each performing a solo acoustic set

Chris Helme (The Seahorses)

Chris Helme first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post - The Stone Roses band 'The Seahorses’ which saw him touring extensively and sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones, U2 and Oasis in numerous support slots. Now solo - he is still rightfully remembered for Britpop classics ‘Love Is The Law’ and ‘Blinded By The Sun’.

Mark Morriss (The Bluetones)

Mark is a singer songwriter who famously made his name fronting English indie outfit The Bluetones. Mark continues to front the four piece after a successful and fruitful 20+ year period, scoring 14 top ten singles and 3 top ten albums, whilst touring the UK, Europe and Japan.

Nigel Clarke (Dodgy)

Nigel is a singer, songwriter, producer and of course best known as the lead singer from Dodgy. Nigel and some members of Dodgy were originally from Bromsgrove and Redditch before they moved and formed the band in Hounslow in 1990. Dodgy are best known for their hits "Staying Out for the Summer", "If You're Thinking of Me", and "Good Enough".

Chris Helme, who first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire's post-Stone Roses band 'The Seahorses' released his brand new solo album on the 27th of August 2012. Still rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics 'Love Is The Law' and 'Blinded By The Sun' - songs that evoked everything the 90's stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance. Present day societal context may well in fact mirror those times but the man himself, now, appears cut from an entirely different cloth. Helmes has an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it's his latest offering The Rookery's knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme's keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.

Mark Morriss (The Bluetones)

Best known as the frontman in The Bluetones, Mark Morriss released his debut solo album Memory Muscle on June 2, 2008. Getting his hands dirty with his own set of songs has been an inspiring experience for Morriss, who started trying them out acoustically at open mic nights in London way back in 2004. 'I'd just turn up with my guitar, play five or six songs, along with everyone else. I didn't want any special favours, and just enjoyed the experience of stripping things right back down' - Morriss.
