Stackridge Live In London
Venue: The Half Moon, Putney
Final bow for quirky British four-piece.
It’s ‘the final bow’ tour for Stackridge, the curious combo who put the West Country on the musical map long before trip-hop. They were probably just too quirky and uncategorisable for fame, but for a time, having opened and closed the first Glastonbury in 1970, they were a significant presence, working with George Martin, signing to Elton John’s Rocket label, and competing with the likes of Genesis and Wings to top Melody Maker readers’ polls.
