Johnny Dean rejuvenates Menswe@r for Nuis@nce night in London on 26th March 2014

A rejuvenated and reformed Menswe@r will perform at the celebratory Britpop night Nuis@nce at Bush Hall in London on Wednesday 26th March 2014 with support from former Strangelove frontman Patrick Duff, up-and-coming Britpop-influenced popsters The Bright Ones and Nuis@nce Club DJs.

Menswe@r formed in 1994, releasing a string of UK Top 40 singles and a top 10 album. They split up in 2000 following the release of their Japan-only second album, Hay Tiempo. In June 2013, singer Johnny Dean performed his first live show in 15 years at a club named after his debut album, featuring a set of Bowie classics topped off with an encore of Menswe@r material, backed by the club’s in-house band. This led to a further show featuring a regenerated version of Menswe@r.

Patrick Duff is the former frontman of Strangelove. He released his first solo album, Luxury Problems – produced by Adrian Utley of Portishead – in 2005, followed in 2010 by The Mad Straight Road.

Since then, Patrick has extensively toured the world in support of and recorded third solo album “Visions Of The Underworld” in a Cottage in Dartmoor that belongs to the composer Nigel Shaw. “Visions Of The Underworld” is available digitally now.

The Bright Ones are an actual real-life best new band in Britain. Our new favourite band. Formed in 2013, they were snapped up by End Of The Trail Records after their first show and released a single that received praise from Tom Robinson, BBC Introducing, Carl Barat and Gary Crowley amongst others. Their second single is imminent.

Nuis@nce is a Britpop night run by promoter/DJs Steven Horry and Bobby Charlton Foster. Starting life in a tiny, sweaty room upstairs at the Camden Head way back in 2009, they eventually found a long-term home in Camden’s Monarch before a change of management led them to their current home, The Buffalo Bar on Highbury Corner.

In that time they’ve hosted DJ sets from members of Menswe@r, Gay Dad and The Long Blondes, live sets from Johnny Dean, Dodgy and their own in-house band and DJed at Koko, the Isle Of Wight Festival and at aftershows for Suede, The Bluetones, Ash and many more. At one point we were worried Nuis@nce may have peaked on the night Luke Haines was dragged along by a mutual friend. “This is my legacy.” he said to us, pointing at the dance floor. “And I give it all to you.” We still can’t work out if he meant this as an insult.
