Presenting a unique double-bill of two of the most exciting late-90s rock bands:
Jesus Jones incorporated elements of electronic music styles such as house and techno to an indie rock format, along with fellow British groups such as The Shamen, Pop Will Eat Itself and EMF. Indeed Jesus Jones were one of the leading purveyors of the early 1990s alternative dance scene. They achieved initial critical acclaim with their 1989 album Liquidizer, and in particular, the single ‘Info Freako’, which featured buzzing rock guitars with samples and a hip-hop sensibility, relatively new at the time. The track was particularly championed by Bruno Brookes on his BBC Radio 1 programme! They went on to achieve global chart success with ‘Right Here, Right Now’ in particular as well as ‘Real Real Real’ and ‘International Bright Young Thing’.
Since forming in 1997 Toploader have over two million album sales to their name and a string of top 20 hits both home and abroad. Their debut album Onka’s Big Moka sold over one million copies and remained in the Top 5 of the UK album chart for over six months earning them 4 Brit Award nominations. In 2000 the single ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ became a global hit spending over a year in European Airplay Charts transforming Toploader into a household name. In 2013 the same track re-entered the Top 40 for three weeks and topped the 10,000,000 hits mark on Youtube, an incredible thirteen years after it was first released, cementing it as one of the biggest songs of recent times.
