Mick Head and The Red Elastic Band

4th May 2024

Sixty-two years of music, loves, losses, long summer days and longer, darker nights are vividly recalled by ‘our greatest living songwriter’, Mick Head and The Red Elastic Band as he plays out flickering scenes from his life on new album, Loophole, set for release on Fri 3 May 2024. Alongside details of the new, 12-track album comes his latest single, Toxteth Ghost Story, and album opener, Shirl’s Ghost. With no shortage of fervour amongst his long-term listeners and those discovering him anew, fans have the chance to gather with Head to hear many of the songs that soundtracked their lives.

Fans will also delight in the news that his long-awaited autobiography, Ciao Ciao Bambino: A Magical Memoir, is announced for publication by Nine Eight Books on Thu 15 August 2024. This is for fans of his four-decade back catalogue and readers ready for a ride through half a century of popular culture, with Head as their guide. Head’s autobiography is poised to offer poignant, humorous and equally heartbreaking and heartwarming stories starting with a loving and adventurous Liverpool childhood.
