Hailing from Leeds and having created one of the most iconic albums in 2002, The Music’s self-titled hasn’t strayed away from the limelight and fans have been clutching at the knees at the thought of the Yorkshire group getting back together to reform.
The Music’s social media accounts have been hinting for a few days now at the chance of the band making waves and getting back together and this morning, they did just that. Announcing an “exclusive reunion show” at Temple Newsam Park in Leeds on the 28th of May next year which is held by Futuresounds. Including an outstanding line-up of guests and supports, The Cribs, The Coral, The Snuts, and The Skinner Brothers will all be making their appearance and sharing the stage with Robert Harvey and co.
With their debut album holding a certified gold in Japan, it had clearly been recognised all over the world – I asked lead guitarist Adam Nutter about it:
How would you describe The Music’s self-titled album?
I would describe our debut album as a perfect snapshot of what we were back then. What we represented. We grew up in small mining towns and villages. Our music effectively reached far beyond where we came from. We each brought different music together and made those sounds that were unique. Especially for sixteen-year-old kids. It captured our musical ethos. We felt invincible back then. It allowed us to express ourselves. Without fear of anything.
What do you think is the most important aspect of the album?
I think the most important thing about the album was the fact that no one tried to influence us. Even though we signed with a major record label, they left us alone to make the music we wanted to make. We were so confident in what we were doing. What we had was natural. You couldn’t force it. So the most important thing was us being left in our creative bubble.
