Michael Head is one of the most respected and accomplished songwriters of his generation as well as the founder of The Pale Fountains, Shack, and most recently The Red Elastic Band. He has announced a show this Saturday 12th August at Liverpool’s Florrie Institute where he will be joined on stage by upcoming local musicians from Liverpool bands Sugarmen and The Shipbuilders.
The evening show is part of Florrie Festival Uno, which opens at 12 noon and features a range of family friendly activities including market stalls, a fun fair, and The Observatory Sessions featuring Michael Head and his musical guests performing acoustic sessions in The Florries iconic Observation Tower.
Head’s latest single with The Red Elastic Band, ‘Josephine’ is available on digital download and precedes the release of his first album in over a decade, the highly anticipated ‘Adiós Señor Pussycat’.
Listen to ‘Josephine’ BELOW:
Michael Head, one of the UK’s greatest living songwriters, may not be a name that is immediately familiar, however his influence is extensive and his music sublime.
Head formed The Pale Fountains in early eighties Liverpool. Producing timeless orchestral pop, the band delivered two critically acclaimed, but commercially ignored LPs before splitting, with Michael and younger brother John going on to form Shack. What followed is a story of mesmerising music, personal tragedy and a music industry unaccustomed to dealing with musicians disinterested in becoming pop stars.
The Florrie is located at 377 Mill Street, Liverpool, L8 4RF. Tickets for the evening show can be bought in person at the Florrie reception or by phone: 0151 728 2323.
