We also have a special headline date in Blackpool on December 9th! And more dates will be added.
Those of you who saw us play together on the 2019 UK tour will know how exciting the Secret Affair/Squire concerts are! We first played together at the Bridge House for the recording of the Mods Mayday LP back in May 1979, and went on to be their label mates at I-Spy records where we released ‘Walking Down The Kings Road’ and ‘The Face Of Youth Today’ singles! We then embarked on the "I-Spy Dancing In The Streets Tour" nationwide concert tour with them! You can see here the original itinerary for that tour, with some dates still to be added - i.e no Cambridge date yet.
We have played together many times since, and are looking forward to teaming up again.
The occasion also coincides with the 40th (yikes!) anniversary of the release of Get Smart! LP. It gives us the chance to reorganise the live set and perform many tracks from the album. Please let us know if you have a favourite you would like us to include!
This is the original advert from Music Week trade paper announcing the release.
Finally, to get us in the mood for what will be a Get Smart year, we have a very limited release of Every Trick (in The Book Of Love) single in BLACK Vinyl! There are other Get Smart goodies planned for later in the year so this is a good place to start!
Thank you again to everyone who has bought the solo album ‘Passengers On Trains. We have received some lovely compliments and next week will be competition time where you can join in to win a white label copy of the vinyl test pressing, so keep an eye on the emails!
