The Spin Doctors crashed into the consciousness of the British record-buying public with their 10m selling album Pocket Full of Kryptonite in 1991, spawning the enormously catchy singles Two Princes and Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.

Following line-up changes and frontman Chris Barron suffering serious health problems that nearly saw him lose his voice completely, the original line-up of the band reformed in 2001 and still gig and record.

They last made the trip across the pond to perform some UK dates in 2012.

This is a rare UK solo tour from Chris, who will be performing solo material alongside the Spin Doctors’ hits.

Also appearing on the bill is Lach, the anti-folk founder and writer/star of the hit BBC Radio 4 series The Lach Chronicles.

He also released The Thin Book of Poems in January, prompting Suzanne Vega to pronounce: ‘Lach is incredibly bright, he’s influential, he’s funny and he’s got his own, sort of, counter-culture charm.’

And Time Out London said of him: ‘Lach is NYC’s living legend, riotously catchy. The roots of modern songwriting: Bob Dylan, Syd Barrett, The New York Dolls, Nick Drake and Lach!’

They are at The Cellars at Eastney on Thursday. Doors 7.30pm. Tickets £10 advance, £12 on the door. Go to
