LINDISFARNE was born in 1970 when Newcastle singer-songwriter Alan Hull joined Rod Clements, Si Cowe, Ray Jackson and Ray Laidlaw, collectively known as Brethren (formerly the Downtown Faction blues band). The new combination’s music, an immediately distinctive blend of Alan’s poetic lyricism and Brethren’s rootsy instrumental style, soon came to the attention of independent label Charisma, and their first album, Nicely Out Of Tune, was released before the year was out.
Following Jacka’s subsequent retirement, Rod Clements accepted an invitation from the others to join them in re-establishing their collective identity as Lindisfarne. As Ray Laidlaw once said, ‘Lindisfarne is more than any one individual’; and though members have come and gone, Rod’s return maintains continuity with Lindisfarne’s beginnings and reinforces their shared commitment to keeping alive the unique legacy of one of British rock’s great bands.
