Enterlude are bringing John Power to Rugby this October accompanied by Jay Lewis (The La’s) .They have acquired a reputation over the last few years for putting on a barn storming acoustic show, featuring lots of favourites from both Cast and his successful solo career that has seen him record 3 albums.
Having first made his mark on the UK pop scene in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s with renowned Liverpudlian quartet The La’s, Power left the group to form a new group called Cast. The timing of band’s emergence was perfect, chiming with the mid-1990s rise of Britpop and, with guitar-based kindred spirits such as Oasis and Blur dominating the charts, Cast’s first two LPs, All Change (released in 1995 and reputedly Polydor’s biggest-selling debut album) and ‘97’s Mother Nature Calls both sold over 1,000,000 copies.
After Cast split in 2001, Polydor put an offer on the table for John Power to record as a solo artist, but at the time he’d had enough of the whole music business and felt he had to get out. Power finally released his solo debut, the first of the three full-length albums, in June 2003.

Chris Helme first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ with the anthemic Britpop classics 'Love Is The Law' and 'Blinded By The Sun'. Chris is now working on his second solo album. Chris was a firm favourite at this summer's 3 indie icons gig Inside The 22 in Rugby alongside Mark Morriss (The Bluetones) and Nigel Clark (Dodgy) and so we just had to get him back for a gig in his own right.
