REWIND: The Bluetones - 'Cut Some Rug'

Only four years after going their separate ways, 90s indie legends The Bluetones are getting back together for some gigs this September. The news was announced today via the band's Twitter and Facebook accounts, along with a list of tour dates that can be seen HERE. The shows are to mark the much-loved group's 20th anniversary, and will no doubt feature all of the brilliant and massively underrated hit singles that the four-piece delivered over their career. One such piece of magic is this from the 1996 debut album 'Expecting To Fly', and a song that I purchased on cassette single from a Woolworths bargain bin. A bargain indeed. Reaching number 7 in the charts. 'Cut Some Rug' was one of thirteen Top 40 singles that the band enjoyed.

With the band reunited, I hope that frontman Mark Morriss continues with his solo career. His solo album 'A Flash Of Darkness' from last year is a superb piece of work, and is reviewed HERE. Give it a listen!
