2. The Farm
The Farm are an English band from
Liverpool who formed in 1983. Evolving from an earlier group called The
Excitements, the band’s first ever single ‘Hearts and Minds’ – produced by Madness
lead vocalist Graham “Suggs” McPherson – was released in 1984. The Farm’s hit
classic ‘All Together
Now’, originally released in November 1990, was also produced by “Suggs” and it
peaked at number four in the UK Singles Chart and number seven in the U.S. Billboard
Modern Rock Tracks chart. A new version of ‘All Together Now’ was later performed
by The Farm for England’s official anthem for Euro 2004. ‘Hearts and Minds’ and
‘All Together Now’ both featured on The Farm’s first album, Spartacus, which was released in March 1991 and
reached number one in the UK album chart.
In recent years, The Farm have established regular appearances at various summer festivals and in 2011–2012 they performed as part of the Justice Tonight Band which toured the UK and Europe to raise awareness of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. The Farm concluded 2012 as part of the Justice Collective, who’s single ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’, reached number one in the UK Official Christmas Charts. The band continue to play live, both acoustic and as a full band.
