Red Guitars

This Hull-based guitar pop band featured Jerry Kidd (vocals), Louise Barlow (bass), Hallam Lewis (lead guitar), John Rowley (rhythm guitar), and Matt Higgins (drums). Created in 1982 by Lewis and Kidd, they released two outstanding singles, ‘Great Technology’ and ‘Truth’, before attaining lots 1 around the impartial graphs with ‘Marimba Jive’. The second option was included on Sluggish To Fade which surfaced on Kidd’s personal Self Drive Information in November 1984. This is a highly refined and initial pop recording, with Kidd’s analytical lyrics towards the fore: ‘I stated that I really like you/God understands I attempted/You say you’ll still like me/But you’re often saying farewell’. Fittingly, Kidd himself was to keep barely 8 weeks after the record’s discharge. He released a press declaration to the result that ‘Officially we improved a whole lot over the last season but musically, from my viewpoint, we were position still. New concepts and songs I put for the group no more seemed to easily fit into. I still favour self-reliance inside the record sector and shall continue steadily to look for achievement, both creative and industrial, with releases by myself Self Drive Record label.’ He was quickly replaced by Robert Holmes, who played his initial gig using the band on the College or university of London Union in 24 May 1985. Lou Howard changed Barlow on bass as Stories Of The Anticipated saw the music group move to A PROVEN WAY Information, through Virgin Information. Even though lyrical concentrate of the music group had changed, these were still with the capacity of creating highly specific and shifting music, notably on singles ‘Country wide Avenue’ as well as the yearning ‘End up being With Me’. Oddly enough, both record sleeves featured quotations from poet Sean O’Brien. Hallam and Howard still left to form the earth Wilson in 1987, with drummer Jonah Oxburrow (ex-That Noble Porpoise), and released the albums In THE VERY BEST Of All Feasible Worlds rather than Drowning But Waving. Hallam today runs his very own studio room in Hull, while Holmes released a single recording in 1989.
