RADIO STARS ANNOUNCE FINAL GIG!
Class of ’77 new wavers RADIO STARS are set to reform for one final gig next year.
The ‘Nervous Wreck’ hitmakers will reunite for a 40th Anniversary show at London’s legendary 100 Club on Friday 17 March. Featuring founder members Andy Ellison and Martin Gordon, former guitarist Ian McLeod will also make an appearance with other guests expected to join in during the night.
Featuring Andy from 60s freakbeaters JOHN’S CHILDREN and Martin from SPARKS, Radio Stars evolved out of powerpoppers JET in 1977, signing to Chiswick Records for the iconic debut single ‘Dirty Pictures’ and making their TV debut on fellow John’s Children alumnus MARC BOLAN’s show Marc with the classic ‘No Russians In Russia’. They tasted chart success with ‘Nervous Wreck’ but split up in ’79 following the release of their second album.
Although Radio Stars have reformed periodically over the years, it is stressed that this is their last ever gig, with the band set to retire the very next day.
Tickets are available here.
