Info zu Science Fiction

Tom Bailey, front man from The Thompson Twins, releases his debut solo album ‘Science Fiction’. Inspired by his return to the live stage in 2014, of "Science Fiction", Tom Bailey comments, “I so much enjoyed playing concerts around the world over the last couple of years, that I began working behind the scenes on writing, recording and mixing the songs in this collection. I have concentrated on other areas of music for the past couple of decades – but I find it incredibly rewarding to be making pop music again. There’s something so special about the way this kind of music works and, for me, it’s like finding a long-lost friend.”

"Tom Bailey is better late than never! For if not now, then when? So, all you veteran enthusiasts of not only New Wave and Synthpop music but also anything that sounds fresh yet familiar and sophisticated but frivolous, what are you waiting for? Prop up that hair and don your flamboyant garbs as you head to the record shops this Friday to grab your copy of Tom Bailey’s brilliant collection of new stories and sentiments set in sonic nuggets. Do this, in the name of love! CrypticRock gives Science Fiction 4 out of 5 stars." (CrypticRock)

Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey to play Thompson Twins hits live for the first time in 27 years.

The long wait will soon be over! For nearly three decades fans of the Thompson Twins have been waiting for more live performances from one of the most iconic bands of the eighties. Now Tom Bailey, with a new band, will be touring and performing most of the big Thompson Twins hits in 2014.

The first performance will be headlining the UK's Henley Rewind festival on Sunday 17 August 2014. This will then be followed by an extensive tour of USA in August and September with Howard Jones, Midge Ure and China Crisis.

The Thompson Twins had huge hits on both sides of the Atlantic. Songs such as 'Hold Me Now', 'Doctor Doctor', 'You Take Me Up' and 'Love On Your Side' provided the soundtrack for so many people's lives worldwide in the mid-eighties. In 1985 The Thompson Twins played 'Hold Me Now' at Live Aid in Philadelphia and also performed the Beatles 'Revolution' with Madonna.

Says Tom: "This will be the first time I've sung the TT's hits in decades. It's taken a long time, but now I'm really looking forward to playing those songs to some of the fans that were there first time around."

Formed in 1977, the original Thompson Twins trimmed down their line-up in 1982 to a three piece of Bailey, Alannah Currie and Joe Leeway as they adopted a more electronic synthesizer based sonic line-up. Tom Bailey was the singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and, along with lyricist Alannah Currie, composed and arranged the Thompson Twins music.

The Thompson Twins also enjoyed big success on the US dance chart with 'Lies", 'In the Name of Love' and 'Hold Me Now' all reaching the No 1.

In 1988 they had another No 1 dance chart hit in the US with 'In the Name of Love 88".

The last Thompson Twins show was in Texas in August 1987 and the band finally broke up in 1993. Since then Bailey has worked in many different areas of music, from the experimental electronic Babble and Kolab to the Indo-fusion of the Holiwater Band, the visual astronomy project BSP and the sound-system dub of International Observer.

The music and videos of the Thompson Twins became a fixture on hit radio and music television throughout the eighties. Tom Bailey will at last be bringing those songs which meant so much to so many, back live in 2014.
