Pub-rock legends DR FEELGOOD have announced a joint tour with fellow R'n'B stalwarts NINE BELOW ZERO.
Formed in Canvey Island, Essex in 1971, the Feelgoods grew out of the London pub-rock circuit, topping the charts and touring the world. Making household names of guitarist Wilko Johnson and singer Lee Brilleaux, they are widely seen as a progenitor of punk. Following Brilleaux's death in 1994, the band continued at the singer's behest, recruiting frontman Robert Kane in 1999.
Dr Feelgood released the well-received new album Damn Right! last November, their first ever album of all-original material.
Inspired by the Feelgoods, Nine Below Zero came together in South London in 1977, their blend of sharp-suited rhythm'n'blues and punk energy gaining pace during the mod revival and captured on the essential live debut album, Live At The Marquee.
Last autumn they toured the UK in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of their classic third album Third Degree.
