When Stackridge visited Lowdham on their farewell tour, we imagined that would be the last time we would hear classic songs from the repertoire of not only Stackridge, but also The Korgis. Well we were wrong!
James Warren, singer, songwriter and founder member of much-loved prog-rock eccentrics Stackridge and 80s pop duo The Korgis, presents an evening of brand new songs from his recent album “Innocent Bystander” with his fantastic new 7-piece band. And of course James will also be performing a fabulous selection of old favourites (along with some rarely-performed curios) from all phases of his 40-year career.
The band line-up, which includes former Stackridge colleague Glenn Tommey, is as follows:
James Warren – vocals and bass guitar
Al Steele – lead guitar
John Baker – rhythm guitar and vocals
Glenn Tommey – keyboards
Paul Smith – drums
Ava Volante – backing vocals
Emmy Rivers – backing vocals
Jay Marshall – backing vocals
“Warren’s enduring passion for the infectious delights of pure melodic pop informed several excellent albums for The Korgis during the late seventies and early eighties ,along with a major singles success in the shape of the softly beguiling “Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometimes.” The former Stackridge stalwart’s subsequent solo career has been a much more low-key affair but Warren’s tuneful musical exploits always repay closer investigation nonetheless , and “Innocent Bystander” is thankfully no exception to the rule. “That’s What You Do To Me” and “Have You Seen The Colours?” are the best of a catchy bunch”.

“As well as founding The Korgis he also co-founded Stackridge…now 65 years old, he has written and produced this album of unashamedly catchy tunes and sing-a-long choruses, decidedly retro in flavour…”
