Neneh Cherry, Village Underground, London - 12th September 2018

Neneh showcased her upcoming album, which sounds as relevant now as Homebrew or Man did in the 90s. Now backed with skittering beats, atmospheric vibes and rolling bass, Neneh's flow continues to make you think, and groove. Rounded out with a couple of faves, a complete gig for fans new and old alike.

The stepdaughter of jazz trailblazer Don Cherry, vocalist Neneh Cherry forged her own groundbreaking blend of pop, dance, hip-hop, and R&B, presaging the emergence of both alternative rap and trip-hop. She was born Neneh Mariann Karlssson on March 10, 1964, in Stockholm, Sweden, the daughter of West African percussionist Ahmadu Jah and artist Moki Cherry. Raised by her mother and her trumpeter stepfather in both Stockholm and New York City, Cherry dropped out of school at age 14, and in 1980 she relocated to London to sing with the punk group the Cherries.

Following brief flings with the Slits and the Nails, she joined the experimental funk/post-punk outfit Rip Rig + Panic, and appeared on the group's albums God (1981), I Am Cold (1982), and Attitude (1983). When the band broke up, Cherry remained with one of the spinoff groups, Float Up CP, and led them through one album, 1986's Kill Me in the Morning. The band proved short-lived, however, and Cherry began rapping in a London club, where she earned the attention of a talent scout who signed her to a solo contract. Her first single, "Stop the War," railed against the invasion of the Falkland Islands.

After attracting some notice singing backup on the The's "Slow Train to Dawn" single, she became romantically and professionally involved with composer and musician Cameron McVey, who, under the alias Booga Bear, wrote much of the material that would comprise Cherry's 1989 debut LP, Raw Like Sushi. One song McVey did not write was "Buffalo Stance," the album's breakthrough single; originally tossed off as a B-side by McVey's mid-'80s pop group Morgan/McVey, Cherry's version was an international smash that neatly summarized the album's eclectic fusion of pop smarts and hip-hop energy.

In 2013, Cherry collaborated with London duo RocketNumberNine on their album MeYouWeYou. She also joined them to perform the entire album at the Manchester International Festival in July 2013. The following year, she released her long-awaited fourth proper studio album, Blank Project. Produced by Kieran Hebden (aka Four Tet) and recorded with RocketNumberNine and executive producer Booga Bear, it also featured an appearance from Swedish artist Robyn.

The excitement continues to build and we expect Neneh Cherry concert tickets to sell very fast. Plus, with only limited amounts being put on sale by the event organisers, you will have to act quickly and place your booking before they all go.
