21st April 2018- Academy 3
Formed in London, this alternative-rock band is made up from Dutch vocalist/keyboardist Marijne van der Vlugt, bassist Pete Brown, drummer Rob Wakeman (ex-Colenso Parade), and guitarist Paul Kennedy.
Their work back in the 1990’s was extremely well received. Early singles reached the top 75 of the UK Singles Chart, with “Motorbike to Heaven” just missing out on a top 40 placing. Salad’s debut album, Drink Me (1995), reached No. 16 on the UK Albums Chart. The next three singles were all minor chart hits, but second album Ice Cream (1997) failed to match the success of the first. The band were dropped by Island Records and ultimately disbanded in 1998.
But they are back and are better than ever. We cannot wait to see them in April.
