After a 27-year absence, those loveable indie chart-topping, cow-punk skiffle rogues Terry and Gerry are reforming, originally in honour of their biggest fan, the late John Peel.

And as part of their 2015 tour they will be playing in The Glasshouse at The Pyramids tomorrow.

When Terry Lilley and Gerry Colvin burst on to the scene, the future of music was a double bass, a battered guitar and a washboard.

BBC DJ John Peel promoted the band when apparently, by chance, he picked out their demo tape because his wife’s best friends were also known as Terry and Gerry and he thought the coincidence was too great to ignore.

In the mid-80s, the band released six singles and the album, From Lubbock To Clintwood East, all reaching number one in the indie charts. Back in the day, they also played here, most notably at The Hornpipe in North End and the now legendary Basins nightclub.

Doors 7.30pm. Tickets £12 advance, £14 door. Call 0844 576 3000 or go to pyramids-live.co.uk
