I guess if this blog is going to pick up any significant numbers I should embrace some of the bigger names that this fair town has offered up over the years. And just as I was thinking about that, serendipitously this popped up. It was posted by Henry Priestman, then a member of The Yachts, later a Christian and these days a member of Ian McNabb’s trusted musical entourage.

Anyway, it will give the readers something to argue about until I make a scathing comment about cover bands or suggest that certain venues aren’t great at advertising their gigs.

The Christians took the British pop charts by storm in the late 80s/early 90s with a multi platinum debut album (THE CHRISTIANS). Hits such as Ideal World and Born Again were followed by number one selling album COLOUR, which knocked Phil Collins off the top spot in 1990. Their version of ‘Harvest for the World’ raised millions for Unicef.

The Christians will be supported on the night by The Groove Radicals, ‘the band that Swindon has been waiting for – a full 9 piece band playing non-stop funk, soul and disco classics’
