The Real People, or "The Realies" as they are known to their fans, formed in 1987 and over the following four years were as pivotal as The La's and The Stone Roses in reinventing rock & roll, after the synth-led new wave music which had dominated the 80s.
They signed to Columbia Records in 1989, releasing their self titled album and the singles "Open Up your Mind", "Window Pane"' and "The Truth"' all to critical acclaim. They sold over 100,000 copies of the album and made significant inroads into Europe, Japan and the US.
The band toured solidly for during the 90s, rebuilding their fan base and picking up new fans all the time. Their close friends Ocean Colour Scene gave them every single support slot they had for the best part of 18 months.
They have since gained recognition for their role in developing Oasis with songwriting credits on "Rocking Chair" and an agreement that without their help Oasis would never have sounded the way they did.
With new Guitarist Martin Lappin and Tony McGuigan Drums the band decided to complete and release their long awaited fourth album – Think Positive which has received critical acclaim from peers and fans. Sited as the best line up of band to date.
A new Album and tour is due this year with a back to basic sound but as always The Real People continue to move forward.
Influences: Think, Bowie, Beatles and Bolan with a touch of Pistols thrown into the mix.
They remain one of the truly great live bands, as their fans will testify and we look forward to 2018 Tour.
