Live Line Up: The 2012 acoustic line up will be Boo Hewerdine, Tony Shepherd, Neill MacColl and Leroy Lendor.
The Bible is one of those bands that writers and singers often cite as one of their favourite bands of all time – they were hugely critically acclaimed but never quite made the big commercial breakthrough.
The Bible formed in the mid eighties around singer Boo Hewerdine, and keyboard/percussion player Tony Shepherd. They released debut album Walking the Ghost Back Home in 1986 on independent record label Backs Records, enjoying a top-ten hit on the UK Independent chart, & staying in the chart for ten weeks. This was followed by first single Graceland, which gave them a hit in the UK. Second single Mahalia reached number 15 on the UK Independent Chart.
The album brought the band to the attention of Chrysalis Records and a label deal ensued. In January 1988, the band's second album, Eureka, was released with single Honey Be Good giving them another hit in 1989.
Soon afterwards the band dissolved (they insist they never actually broke up) and the members moved onto other music projects. Boo Hewerdine forged a successful solo career and numerous collaborations with the likes of Eddi Reader and Chris Difford. Tony Shepherd is a successful session player and sometime lecturer at Brighton Institute of Music. Neill MacColl went on to form critically acclaimed act Liberty Horses with his brother Calum before becoming an independent musician and producer.
The Bible also performed at The Junction's opening party in Feb 1990!
