THE INCA BABIES reformed in 2007 to play a 20th birthday party of IBD, the German agency which first took them to Europe, and they haven’t stopped since.

Founder member Harry Stafford’s penned three new albums since – ‘Death Message Blues’, ‘Deep Dark Blue’ and the forthcoming “The Stereo Plan” (sept 2014) - with more to come. Critics agree their shows are blistering, relentless dark blues-tinged guitar rock sets with lavish helpings of classics alongside great new songs.

With two number one indie chart singles, four Peel sessions and a Top 5 album in the 1980s, as well as hundreds of gigs across Europe and Scandinavia it’s no wonder the original Incas left a legacy. But with Rob Haynes (Goldblade) on drums and A Witness bassman Vince Hunt as the rhythm section, the reformed Incas have been getting rave reviews in Italy, Poland, Lithuania, Greece and Holland as well as at selected gigs across the UK, appearing with Lydia Lunch’s Big Sexy Noise, Zounds, SpizzEnergi, March Violets and Punishment of Luxury.

‘My Sick Suburb’, their first single for 25 years was released on 7” blue vinyl for Record Store Day in April 2012 and they’ve released another RSD vinyl outing with ‘Scatter’ on 12” clear vinyl in 2014.

Support comes from A WITNESS - the band were John Peel Show regulars and toured Europe and the UK with some of the best names of the time – The Fall, Swans, Sonic Youth and Three Johns among them. Now they’re back with a superb live line-up earning rave reviews for their power and punch. Also expect to see THE GREAT LEAP FORWARD (ACOUSTIC SET) a “band” formed in 1987 by former bIG*fLAME singer and bassist Alan Brown when that band came to its planned and logical end in 1986. Freed from the restrictive musical philosophy and practice that epitomised bIG*fLAME, Alan was able to flourish musically and develop The Great Leap Forward into a much more melodic and danceable proposition, yet still retaining the bIG*fLAME quirkiness and attitude/ethos.
