Performance gigs

Having survived major label turbulence, a fractious inter-band romance and the lead singer becoming an internationally-published novelist, Mancunian trio Performance – frontman Joe Stretch, guitarist Laura Marsden and Joe Cross (synths/bass/production) – return with ‘Red Brick Heart’, their brilliant second album.

With ‘Red Brick Heart’ Performance capture the mastery and misery of great British pop: on the surface, the music surges with glittering optimism; beneath that veneer, however, there lurks something deeper and troubled. It’s an irresistible combination, with Laura Marsden and Joe Cross bringing the musical joy to Stretch’s dark, quotable lyrics.The album was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios with producer Cliff Jones (Zero 7, Young Heart Attack, The Golden Virgins), with additional recording at Joe Cross’s studio(The Sound Of Arrows, Hurts)
