BLACK Grape take to the stage at Leamington’s Assembly on July 1.
Formed from the ashes of Happy Mondays and Ruthless Rap Assasins, the Shaun Ryder fronted Black Grape made an immediate impact on the charts in the mid 90s with their funky rock interspersed with rapping and samples, which produced hits including Reverend Black Grape, In The Name Of The Father and Kelly’s Heroes.
The band split in 1998 but Ryder has resurrected Black Grape.
They have just signed to Alan McGee’s Creation Management and are undertaking a reunion tour to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of debut album It’s Great When Your Straight.
They play the Aasembly on Wednesday July 1. Visit wwwleamingtonassembly.com for tickets and further details.
