SUPERSONIC: A Brand New Indie & Britpop Night feat. BEZ (of Happy Mondays)

  • Bez (Happy Mondays)

    Bez (Happy Mondays)

    Indie Rock

    The man, the myth, the legend.

    There’s a lot to be said for simply being yourself. Just ask Bez AKA Mark Berry, who’s forged a
    route to the heart of the nation simply by being himself, an Energizer Bunny indie icon who’s
    endured from the Happy Mondays heyday to winning Celebrity Big Brother. And let’s be honest,
    anyone who can survive – no strive – during the Happy Mondays heyday and is here to tell the
    story, boggle-eyed dancing and all, deserves our respect.

    Let’s start with the facts.
    Born in the 60s to a police detective father and raised in Salford, Bez was literally dragged on
    stage by school-friend Shaun Ryder to become part of the Happy Mondays for their debut live
    show at The Hacienda in 1980. Tripping on microdots (obviously), the pair immediately created a
    riot on and off stage, with Bez leaving quite the impression: not only did he shake his maraca so
    hard it left a wound on his hand, he impressed watching Factory Records’ boss Tony Wilson. “Tony
    Wilson said to Shaun, ‘Who’s that kid on stage with you? You’ve got to have him again,’ recalls
    Bez.” From that moment on, I’ve always been a Happy Monday.”

    The band were at the forefront of the Madchester scene, combining the blissful energy of the
    emerging dance music and acid house scene with an indie ethos. Signed to Factory Records,
    Happy Mondays encapsulated everything great about Madchester from the jangly pop of The
    Smiths to the pioneering electronic vibes of New Order. And with ring-leader Shaun Ryder creating
    a low-slung sleazy dancefloor sound and Bez leading the party from the front, all rubber-limbed
    moves and boggle-eyed stares, their man-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude and everyman-approach won
    them fans around the world.
    Bez has been a virtual ever-present: there through the band reforms, there in Happy Mondays offshoot act Black Grape while he – somewhat improbably – added to his TV portfolio spanning BBC
    Two science shows, Pimp My Ride, the Crystal Maze, Dave comedy show Judge Romesh,
    Celebrity Juice and, erm, antiques. As well as his notorious CBB win in 2005, Bez recently starred
    on Bargain Hunt alongside Jarvis Cocker where, Bez being Bez, he became the first ever
    participant to get thrown off for bending the rules.

    But that’s the immutable magic of Bez. The sheer unlikeliness of his career, the unpredictable way
    nature, the universe and Bez have intersected and unfolded to let Bez be his best Bez, allowing
    him to roam free across the decades, unfettered by conventions and trad ideas of growing up and
    the drudgery of 21st Century living, of having 2.4 children and knowing what a standard variable
    rate mortgage is. He’s Bez, the man who put the Mad into Madchester, an ever-green indie icon, a
    law unto himself.

    And that’s still the case. Bez’s latest, and he might say greatest love, is bees. And juicing. And
    foraging, creating an off-grid, self-sufficient lifestyle right down to brewing his own beer and
    growing his own food. And reading – gosh, the man can read with everything from history to politics
    to the economy fair game. But life for Bez now is mainly bees, giving rise to the title of his
    autobiography should he write it: Bez - From E’s to bees.

    Yet, he’s still the indie icon, the dancing loon, the friendly Peter Pan of indie, the fresh-faced (that’ll
    be the juicing) star of indie and Hacienda nights across the country, the genial host of UK-wide club
    night And On The Sixth Day God Created Manchester and regular globe-trotting DJ dates and TV
    appearances. And, while his hip might be a bit wonky from years of pogoing and freaky dancin’,
    he’s still the Happy Mondays indie metronome, touring the world with his partners in loose 4/4 time,
    once again proving he’s the bee’s knees, an undimmed, full voltage light still shining bright 40
    years into his career: Bez just being Bez.

    Nigel Clark (Dodgy)

    Alternative Rock

    Nigel Clark is touring in his band Dodgy throughout 2020 however returned to performing in 2005 as a solo artist. This new project received a positive review from Q magazine. He released his debut album 21st Century Man, on 20 November 2006.

    In 2007, Clark teamed up with dance music duo SFG to produce a new version of Dodgy's "Good Enough". SFG (which stands for Sunshine Feel Good) had been writing dance tracks together in their Hereford recording studio for two years. The group consists of Jon Sidwell and Andrew Marston. BMG Music Publishing, who own the copyright to "Good Enough", allowed the reworking in July 2007, and the single is available as a white label.
