4 Men 4 Mencap: Brian Nash, Pete Wylie, Ian McNabb, Ian Prowse
Even before joining Frankie Goes to Hollywood, guitarist Brian Nash was already causing a racket in his hometown of Liverpool, England. In 1977, Nash discovered punk rock, and he used his guitar to crank out amateurish covers of songs from the Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks, and Stiff Little Fingers with his first band Smuzz.
Upon graduation, After experimenting with several other groups, Nash formed Sons and Egypt with Peter Gill (drums) and Holly Johnson (vocals). In 1980, Gill and Johnson departed from Sons and Egypt for a new band, Frankie Goes to Hollywood.
When Gerard O'Toole quit Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Nash became the group's guitarist. Like Duran Duran, Frankie Goes to Hollywood took advantage of MTV's popularity with stylish, sexually provocative videos. The band broke up in 1987.
In 1991, Nash collaborated with singer Grant Boult as Low. Low recorded one LP, Enter the Bigger Reality. Nash and Boult decided to work together again as Dr. Jolly's Salvation Circus. Nash created his own Internet-based label, Babylon Pink, and in 2000 he recorded his solo debut, Ripe.
Brian 'Nasher' Nash tour dates
Seminal Scouse maverick who, along with Ian McCulloch and Julian Cope, pioneered the Eighties art-indie scene. His debut gig was at the legendary Eric's in Liverpool - the night it was raided and closed down for ever. He bounced back with a series of bands - Wah! Heat, Wah! and The Mighty Wah! - and achieved chart success with the anthemic 'The Story Of The Blues' in 1982.
Still writing great songs, Wylie's shows provide entertainment both musically and through his extravagantly opinionated conversation. The man's a legend, miss him at your peril!
Pete Wylie tour dates
One of the great singer/songwriters to emerge from the 80s Liverpool music scene. Founder/lead singer with the chart toppers The Icicle Works, famous for the UK and US Top 40 hits "Love Is A Wonderful Colour" and "Whisper To A Scream (Birds Fly)", Ian McNabb has gone on to enjoy a critically-acclaimed solo career. The Mercury Music Prize nominated artist continues to write stunning songs with warmth, humour, cynicism and grandeur.
