First formed in 1987 as school boys growing up in the terracotta streets of home town Reading, Blindman’s Rainbow were on the verge of big things by 1990, but when a big deal with a big label fell through, it was time to take a break.
A new-fangled social media platform brought founding members together in 2014 for a marathon mid-week drinking session in the Purple Turtle bar.

The result is a hybrid Alt-Rock fusion of their early influences, The Clash and Spacemen 3 with later sounds including The Verve and Mogwai.
Close your eyes, and hear the melody.
