After almost 20 years Salad singer Marijne van der Vlugt and guitarist Paul Kennedy are reuniting as a duo Salad Undressed to perform at Manchester’s Ritz.  The show comes ahead of a full reunion for Salad with their first shows in 19 years this Autumn.

Marijne and Paul found themselves in January 2016 finding the idea of going out on the road as a 2-piece, (just like they did in the late 80s as The Merry Babes), really quite appealing. They wanted to play the classic Salad hits and some rare B-sides and odd-scurities, acoustically.  Although it’s not quite fully acoustic as a fuzz guitar and old fashioned melodica are deployed.

Salad Undressed recently released their new single Being Human, their first since 1997’s Yeah Yeah.  The single, released in July, is the first track from their upcoming album Good Love Bad Love.   The duo have been recording with producer and multi-instrumentalist Donald Ross Skinner, who produced Salad’s last album Ice Cream in 1997.  Good Love Bad Love is due for release at the end of 2017.

When and when do Salad Undressed perform in Manchester?

Salad Undressed, the duo of singer Marijne van der Vlugt and guitarist Paul Kennedy, perform at Manchester’s O2 Ritz on 19 August.  The Manchester gig is part of the Star Shaped Festival which features Salad Undressed alongside The Bluetones, Sleeper, Space, Dodgy and My Life Story.
