James “Midge” Ure, OBE is a Scottish singer, musician, songwriter and producer. His stage name, Midge, is a phonetic reversal of Jim, the diminutive form of his given name.
Ure enjoyed particular success in the 1970s and ’80s in bands including Slik, Thin Lizzy, Rich Kids and Visage, and most notably as frontman of Ultravox. In 1984 Ure co-wrote and produced the charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”, which has sold 3.7 million copies in the UK. The song is the second highest selling single in UK chart history. Ure co-organised Band Aid, Live Aid and Live 8 with Bob Geldof. Ure acts as trustee for the charity, and serves as ambassador for Save the Children.
In 1985 Ure’s solo debut album The Gift, which reached number two in the UK Albums Chart, included the UK number one single “If I Was”. Ure has had four other UK top-30 solo hit singles: “No Regrets”, “That Certain Smile”, “Call of the Wild” and “Cold, Cold Heart”.
Richard Lloyd was the rhythm guitarist for New York punk legends Television; he released the solo album Alchemy in 1979 and then dropped out of sight due to drug addiction, returning in 1985 cleaned up and with a new record, Field of Fire. The follow-up, a live album recorded at CBGB’s and titled Real Time, appeared in 1987. Along with ex-Voidoids guitarist Robert Quine, Lloyd next helped bring Matthew Sweet to prominence on a series of albums starting with 1991’s power pop classic Girlfriend; after the follow-ups Altered Beast and 100% Fun, both guitarists departed.
In addition to teaching, Lloyd returned to his solo career, forming a backing band that included bassist Peter Stuart and drummer Chris Butler. A new studio album, The Cover Doesn’t Matter, was released in early 2001. Lloyd revisited his second solo album, Field of Fire, in 2005, completely redoing it, and the results were issued as 2007’s Field of Fire on Reaction/Parasol, which included both the original and redone versions of the album. The all-new Radiant Monkey arrived that same year. In 2009 LLoyd completed work on the Jamie Neverts Story, an ambitious collection of Jimi Hendrix covers.
Color Film is a post-punk/new wave band from New York formed in 2012 by Glassjaw/Head Automatica frontman Daryl Palumbo and former Men Women & Children bassist/current Head Automatica multi-instrumentalist Richard Penzone. The band released their debut EP “Until You Turn Blue” on October 22, 2013 on Calm + Collect. The band also released a live video for their track “Small Town”.
The Ritualists are NYC-based dark psychedelia. Fronted by lyricist and multi-instrumentalist, Christian Dryden, the group’s fusion of classic glam rock, post punk and modern Brit-pop has raised more than a few eyebrows, earning them comparisons to legends such as David Bowie, Echo and The Bunnymen and The Verve, and the praise of Sex Pistols founder, Glen Matlock.
With such an eclectic lineup of influential and talented musicians heading to Revolution Bar & Music Hall along with great DJ sets all night long, you won’t want to Midge Ure and MORE Friday, September 30th, 8PM, at 140 Merrick Rd, Amityville!
