M People Biography - Moving
On Up The Charts
Band founder Mike Pickering - the M referred to in their name - was already an experienced industry
veteran before putting this quirky quartet together. A Madchester veteran, he was one of the in-house DJs at legendary club
the Hacienda and also worked for its parent label Factory Records, signing the Happy Mondays among others. Frustrated with
the evolution of the scene, he brought vocalist Small, keyboardist Paul Heard and enigmatically-named percussionist Shovell
together in 1990. Within three years they were enjoying an amazing run of success, scoring eight successive Top 10 hits with
tracks such as 'One Night in Heaven' and 'Sight For Sore Eyes'. Meanwhile, sophomore album Elegant Slumming was a huge
commercial and critical success, hitting Number Two and winning the 1994 Mercury Prize. Follow-ups Bizarre Fruit I
and II and Fresco also stormed the charts, leading to BRIT Awards success and widespread acclaim before the band went
on a lengthy break to pursue other projects. While Small launched a successful solo career, Pickering went back behind the
scenes to work as an A&R - but this wouldn't be the end of the story.
Returning to the scene in the late '00s, the
band are reuniting in 2013 to showcase their amazing hits at a string of live dates. Don't miss out - buy M People tickets
