More About Gomez
The five members of Gomez played their first shows together in Leeds in late 1996, and soon began recording songs in lead singer Olly’s, dad’s garage in Southport.
The demos aroused considerable interest, and the group signed to the Virgin subsidiary label Hut Records in 1997. These garage demos eventually became their debut, ‘Bring It On’, which was praised in the rock press on both sides of the Atlantic.
“An intriguing blend of swamp blues, bar-room rock and eerie power.”
The group stood apart in their attitude and demeanour from the Brit-pop groups in vogue at the time. Typical of this was the comment from the panel of judges for the Mercury Music Prize who described the album as “an intriguing blend of swamp blues, bar-room rock and eerie power.”
Gomez won 1998’s Mercury Music Prize for Album of the Year, where they edged out such stiff competition as Massive Attack’s Mezzanine, the Verve’s ‘Urban Hymns’ and Pulp‘s ‘This Is Hardcore’.
‘Bring It On’
‘Bring It On’ was followed by several more critically acclaimed and highly successful records such as 1999’s ‘Liquid Skin’, 2004’s ‘Split the Difference’ and ‘How We Operate ‘in 2006.
Gomez are living proof that perseverance and consistency are qualities to be proud, of as the group have ridden out changes in fads and styles around them to maintain their popularity and critical standing around the world.
‘Bring It On’ has a creative buzz, the excitement and spirit of adventure that comes when any young band starts out — and which Gomez has, with no self-aggrandised fanfare, successfully maintained to this day.
Bluesfest Touring are thrilled to welcome them back to Australia at such an important time in their career.
