Pat and Greg

Hue And Cry caught the public’s attention in the late 80s with a string of chart friendly hits, including ‘Labour Of Love’ and ‘Looking For Linda’. Tracks that formed the sound track to the school years of many of us! The band’s pop sound was not to last, however, as in the 90s they took an experimental turns, and demonstrated their abilities to slip in and out of a multitude of styles, including jazz. After the six album exploration, the Kane brothers felt compelled to go their separate ways and pursue individual creative outlets.

However, the hiatus was short live, ending in 2005 when the revitalised Kane brothers were inspired to return to their pop roots albeit with a modern, matured outlook. 2008’s Open Soul was followed by the seasonal offering Xmasday, 2012’s funk inspired Hot Wire, in 2014 a reworking of Remote was released, (Remote: Major To Minor), to celebrate 25 years since its original, a jazz inspired re-imagining of the much beloved second Hue And Cry album, and September Songs (2015), an intriguing album of Frank Sinatra covers.

The new album, Pocketful Of Stones exhibits the full spectrum of Hue And Cry’s formidable sonic repertoire. Pat’s soulful vocals, paired with the tense of musical build ups, and the dynamic shifts and mood of Greg’s compositions. The sound is brought to life with the expert musicianship of Hue And Cry’s band, “they’re all over this new album, Pocketful Of Stones”, Pat explains, “and they power our live shows to greater heights. We’re working with an amazing community of younger generation musicians who were inspired to take up their instruments by our big albums like Seduced And Abandoned, Remote, and Stars Cash Down. It’s a golden era for us in Scotland in terms of sheer musical talent, and we’re proud to highlight and showcase that on Pocketful Of Stones.”
