Live Sessions: The Farm and Sub Blue

This Wednesday we welcome both The Farm and Sub Blue to grace our rooftop stage.

Formed in early 1983, The Farm are a much-loved Liverpool band that grew in popularity during the 1990s. Their big break came when they released their first album, Spartacus in March 1991, it reached number one in the UK Album Charts.

The group had eight top forty hit singles in the UK including ‘Groovy Train’ and ‘All Together Now’ that were a soundtrack for a generation. For a four year period between 1990 and 1994, The Farm toured the world and their raucous live shows became the stuff of legend. The group went their separate ways in 1995 but continued to enjoy popular appeal and their records have become all time classics.

In December 2010, the original line up returned to play their home town at the O2 Academy, receiving huge praise.  What was supposed to be a one-off show, became a reforming of the band and they haven’t looked back since.

Suburban Blue aka SUB BLUE is a 19-year-old vocalist, musician and songwriter. His sound is best described as electronic soul, which bears the energy, angst and abandon of adolescence. He offers intelligent and introspective song writing, giving a suburban snapshot of teenage life in Merseyside.

Already shaping a strong following, Sub Blue is renowned for his outstanding live performances, which has taken him to award winning music festivals such as LIMF.
