Haircut 100 and The Royal Albert Hall
Haircut 100 were a British new wave group formed in 1980 in Beckenham, London by Nick Heyward, Les Nemes and our very own Graham Jones. In 1981 and 1982, the band scored four UK top 10 hit singles: “Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)”, “Love Plus One”, “Nobody’s Fool”, and “Fantastic Day”.
Graham recently travelled up to London to attend National Album Week at the Royal Albert Hall where Classic Album Sundays founder Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy was joined by Haircut 100 founding member Nick Heyward, in a question and answer session and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their debut album Pelican West, as part of the National Album Day 2022 celebrations.
The Pelican West 40th anniversary edition is set for release in March 2023 as a CD box set and vinyl box set which will feature a half speed master on 180g black vinyl.
