‘THE Neds’ as they were affectionately known set the music world alight with their infectious brand of indie-rock back in the late eighties and early nineties.
The band later went their separate ways, but not before influencing the likes of a host of today’s stars said to include Coldplay, Muse and Mark Ronson.
A reformation of sorts, featuring most of the original line-up, took place from 2000 to 2007 but then the Neds proper reunited when a new compilation of their Sony recordings was being put together.
Following a rammed-out show at London’s Astoria in December 2008, the reunited Neds decided it was time to come back to their spiritual gigging home – Wolverhampton!
This weekend they take to the stage at Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall (Saturday May 23).
