The Return of the Fabric Four Tour 2019Corduroy arrived on the Acid Jazz scene in early 1992. Self-styled as the Fabric Four, they cut a striking presence with their soundtrack for the beatific generation.Their trilogy of albums on Acid Jazz Records - Dad Man Cat, High Havoc and Out Of Here - drew on their unifying love of '60s and '70s TV themes and film soundtracks.Corduroy supported Blur, Pulp and Supergrass at Alexandra Palace in 1994 at the height of the Brit-Pop scene. The same year, they were voted second best live act of 1994 in Melody Maker. Corduroy were formed by Scott and Ben Addison, from the remnants of art-yob band Boys Wonder - along with ex-Doctor and the Medics bassist Richard Searle and Jazz guitarist Simon Nelson-Smith.2018's new album, The Return Of The Fabric Four, is reminiscent of a Johnny Pate or Quincy Jones soundtrack and welcomes back Corduroy, who are playing an extensive UK tour for the first time since the 1990s.
