We have been dying to tell you this for ages but Shaun Ryder has reformed Black Grape and the band have been rehearsing in Manchester’s northern quarter preparing a celebration of their classic debut album.

Black Grape were the great rising of the dead after the Happy Mondays implosion and the stickier, funkier, darker pop hit the charts and saw Shaun spread his genius over a new set of jams.

the band will be making their debut at Bez’s upcoming benefit for The Reality Party campaign to get Bez elected to MP in Salford at the new Factory venue in Manchester and have a world tour planned.

We are also glad to hear that Kermit is in the band and they have top notch management.
