“AFTER half an hour on the phone with Mark, two things are abundantly clear – one, he’s a natural storyteller and has more than enough stories to keep him going for ages and, two, he’s passionate about music and always has been. Talking about his upcoming appearance at the Rewind Festival in Henley’s Temple Island Meadows, he seems to be looking forward to it as much as a fan as he is as a performer.”

Just over a year ago, Then Jerico were still a part of 80’s memories.
A band that made and released great music, had a fantastic following and were an iconic band in an iconic decade.
Fast forward to 2013 and Then Jerico have already got back together, completed a reunion tour and established themselves again as a perfect accompaniment to this current craze of reminiscing. Stereoboard caught up with lead singer Mark Shaw for another chat about the band’s plans.

Drummer Steve Wren to miss tour…

Featured

Rockers Then Jerico are about to head out on their ‘Reprise’ Tour on 7th May (in Aberdeen) but sadly without original drummer Steve Wren.

Steve will miss the band’s tour as he stays at home in New Zealand to look after his wife who is recovering from a major operation.
Steve Wren

Remaining original members, lead vocalist Mark Shaw, guitarist Rob Downes, bassist Jasper Stainthorpe and guitarist Scott Taylor are taking to the road again for 13 dates around the UK taking in (amongst others) Newcastle, Manchester, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Hull, Cardiff and culminating in a gig at the legendary Clapham Grand in London. They will be joined by friend of the band, drummer John Miller who has in the past played with Mark Shaw and also St Etienne, Suggs, Chris Helme, Gabrielle and Bernard Butler.

As Mark says: “We are really sorry to have to announce to fans that our mate and original drummer Steve can’t make it over here for the tour. He is as gutted as us to miss out on the tour but we know he will be with us in spirit. We may even try to Skype a call to him from the show so he won’t miss out! We all wish him and his family all the best and hope to have him back with us on the next tour!”

Please respect Steve’s and the band’s privacy over this personal matter.

Then Jerico @ Rewind Festival

Featured

Then Jerico’s Mark Shaw & Scott Taylor will be appearing on Saturday 17th August @ this year’s REWIND FESTIVAL (Henley)

Citing Duke Ellington, Scott Walker, The Rolling Stones and fellow Rewind artist Cockney Rebel amongst his influences, Mark Shaw formed Then Jerico in 1983 via an advert in Melody Maker and signed to London Records (FFRR) in 1984.

After two years of constant touring the group released their debut album “First” in 1986, which included the hit single ‘The Motive’ which remained in the UK Top 40 chart for three months, becoming the most-played record on BBC Radio 1 in 1987 and bringing Jerico worldwide recognition.

“Let Her Fall” and “Muscle Deep” also featured on the album, the latter being banned by Radio 1 due to its political subject matter – Apartheid.  Nevertheless the band continued to tour the world with the “Artist Against Apartheid” banner and in 1989 released their classic gold status album “The Big Area” which featured singles ‘Sugarbox’, “What Does It Take?” (featuring another Rewind artist Belinda Carlisle) and their biggest hit single, title track “Big Area”.

Following a successful solo career in the 90s and 00s, Mark Shaw reunited Then Jerico for a UK reunion tour in September 2012 to such success they hit the road again in May 2013 with their ‘Reprise’ Tour stopping at Rewind Festival along the way.

A new compilation album ‘Reprise’ is out on Warner / Rhino Music soon…

getreadytorock.me.uk reviews The Big Area (Rhino/Warners)

Featured

Then Jerico – The Big Area (Rhino/Warner)

Then Jerico is a pop rock outfit hailing from the 80’s and “The Big Area”, the band’s second album, is one of the fastest selling albums on the day of its release (1989), moving 100000 copies in 40 minutes!  The band has reunited and plans to play the album on tour in its entirety…

The album has been difficult to obtain for a number of years and it finally sees a re-release.  It still sounds remarkable and is well worth listening to, 23 years later.  Sadly, with all the Deluxe Editions hitting the shelves, it is disappointing not to see “The Big Area” get similar treatment…

Still a fine album and one which the younger generation should pick up and listen to.

Acoustic Review (Fiona Middleton)

Featured

Sooooooo….almost 24 hours ago I was making my way to  the final gig of the Then Jerico Big Area tour…this was always going to be emotional. The acoustic gig to round off an amazing 2 weeks of O2 Academy arena dates. Having been to 3 of those, I was looking forward to the intimacy of this “farewell for now”  to the fans.

In contrast to the stomping, full on, sometimes fever pitch atmosphere of the Academy’s, the Bedford saw the TJ boys in a much more laid back, chilled environment. Very relaxed. Fans were seated. Up close and personal is an understatement. Everybody in the venue seemed within touching distance of the stage. Really could not have been any more intimate. The feeling was that the boys on stage were loving that just as much as we were!

This was the first time the TJ boys had done this acoustic set, but you would never have known, judging by the opening “Let Her Fall”. It was gorgeous. Softer, of course, but still as rousing….and gave us a flavour of what was to come. Mark N Rob, Jasper, Steve and Scott proceeded to keep us rocking with some more “First – The Sound Of Music” favourites, including a crowd pleasing Hitcher. They then moved on to the Big Area album.

From my seat, I’d had a sneak peek at the set list laying on stage (yes, we were ALL that close -lol!) …to discover Sugar Box was 11th down the list. Couldn’t miss that!  So 4th song in was when I went to get a round in, in the adjoining pub. Approx four minutes later, with beer in one hand and Jack Daniels in the other,  I walked back into the theatre to find tears down faces and Mark whispering out the last “Sugar Box” of this beloved song into his mic. :-(   Those naughty boys had played with order of play. Rebels!  Rock and roll!  LOL.

You can’t ask a die hard TJ fan what their favourite song is – there are too many. But for me, Play Dead was an absolute rare treat. Darkest Hour was outstanding. But Big Area…this acoustic, stripped down, haunting version, saw Mark and Rob quietly bringing some of the audience to tears once more. Never imagined this iconic, stomping  rock song, could ever sound like that. And I can’t wait for the DVD to come out to those fans who couldn’t make it. It’s a truly beautiful version. Half way through, the boys pumped it back up to full throttle for the fans to sing along loud and proud and partake of some air punching.  :-)

As with the previous gigs, Mark, Scott, Steve, Rob and Jasper  gave us a rousing Reeling. Oooohhhh YEAH  baby!

At the risk of being cheesy (to go with  crackers)  there was a buzz on the stage between the boys. Lots of love and affection there. Great to see. But also, between the fans and the boys.

The arena gigs were brilliant, but this intimate one was a real treat on so many levels. For the fans, a one off.

Come back boys!  Let’s do this again some time. What a brilliant fortnight. What a brilliant band.  Never thought I’d see this again – all these great songs live. Absolutely superb. I won’t forget it.

THANK YOU…

We had an amazing evening at The Bedford Theatre last night, filmed and recorded for CD / DVD available to pre-order from the webstore.
It was a unique and beautiful moment in TJ history ; our acoustic début…(albeit a rather loud rock’n'roll acoustic début!)Thank you to all of you who managed to come down to support us and all you Pledgers. You will of course receive the CD / DVD Set before the rest of the world…
On behalf of all the TJ members I would like to thank the lovely people who made it possible : Tony Moore, Nat and Lauren and all the staff at The Bedford, Gary Langan, Nikki Eede, Lewis Young, Sue Kennedy, Lynda Bennett, Kenny Reid and his brilliant film crew, the Pledge Team, Bruce McKenzie, James Downes and Jedi at Pancentric Digital and of course the multi-talented Mr. Kyron Armstrong.

‘THE BIG AREA’ TOUR +  ‘BEST OF’ ALBUM!

“Going on tour with Then Jerico is like a cross between a commando assault and a Club 18-30 holiday…” ADRIAN THRILLS - NME 

Then Jerico

Rockers THEN JERICO have announced a reunion tour with all original band members to mark the 25th anniversary of their debut album, First (The Sound Of Music), which is also being digitally re-released by Warner’s on the Rhino Music label, as is their second album, The Big Area.

Mark Shaw (vocals), Steve Wren (drums), Rob Downes (guitar), Jason Stainthorpe (bass) and Scott Taylor (guitar) are re-uniting for eight UK shows, and will perform The Big Area in its entirety, as well as selected tracks from First.

“I’m REALLY excited to be going out on tour with the guys after so many years,” says Mark Shaw.  “The songs we will be playing are a big part of our lives, and of other people’s too – it will be great to reconnect with our fans who have been so loyal, and to perform the songs they are dying to hear. The show will be in two parts – the first will feature the singles and some favourites from our first album, the second will be the whole of The Big Area!”

Then Jerico first found fame in 1986 with the release of their debut album, First (The Sound Of Music), which featured hit singles Muscle Deep and The Motive, the latter remaining in the UK Top 40 for three months, and becoming the most-played song on BBC Radio 1 in 1987.  The album brought Then Jerico worldwide recognition, and saw them touring with the likes of Iggy Pop, INXS and Propaganda, and the band also headlined The Albert Hall and Hammersmith Odeon many times, as well as packing out huge concert halls across the UK, Japan and Europe.

Their second album, The Big Area, cemented them as one of the biggest acts of the 80s: selling over 100,000 copies in just forty minutes, the album immediately achieved gold status, and went on to reach platinum sales.

In recent years Mark Shaw has enjoyed a successful solo career, releasing four more albums: a solo album, Almost, on EMI, and three more albums as Then Jerico - Orgasmaphobia, and two live albums, Alive & Exposed and Radio Jerico – and has branched out into stage and film acting. Also, as a member of the SAS Band, Mark has performed all around the world alongside Tony Hadley, Paul Young, Fish, and Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen.  Mark also headlines the monthly club night The Kitsch Lounge Riot in London’s West End, and is currently in the studio writing new material – Warner’s/Rhino will release a Best Of album later this year.

Tickets available via Ticketweb.co.uk / 0844 477 2000

The album First (The Sound Of Music) will be available on October 1st on Rhino/Warner
