+ THE TRUTH

Secret Affair formed in 1978 and released their seminal debut album “Glory Boys” the following year. “The Glory Boys” was a smart-dressing youth movement based around the idea of 1960s gangster chic, influenced by the movie, “Performance.”

In a period of a little over two years, Secret Affair had five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums. The debut single “Time For Action” reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the ‘Mod Revival’ movement. More chart success followed with “Let Your Heart Dance”, “My World”, “Do You Know” and “Sound Of Confusion”.

Secret Affair will be performing their debut album in full to celebrate the 40th anniversary of it’s release + a selection of other Secret Affair classics.

The Truth were formed in 1982 by the band leader of Nine Below Zero Dennis Greaves and Mick Lister. Their debut single “Confusion ( Hits Us Every Time )” went to No. 22 in the UK charts and was followed swiftly by “A Step in the Right Direction” which reached No. 32. Their debut album “Playground” came out in 1985 and was followed by “Weapons of Love” (1987) and “Jump” (1989) along with some fantastic singles before the band split.
