Sad Cafe


UK Cult Classic Rock Group SAD CAFE Documentary DVD

Monday, March 23, 2015
At home on stage and in the studio, seven-piece Sad Cafe followed 10cc out of Manchester and into the charts.

This hour-long TV showcase from the Rockstage series, filmed by Central Television, Nottingham, in 1980, majors on the hit album 'Facades', and includes the hits 'Strange Little Girl', 'Every Day Hurts' and 'My Oh My'.

Fronted by charismatic singer Paul Young, who went on to find success with Genesis spin-off, Mike + The Mechanics, and who sadly passed away in 2000, Sad Caf' were at their peak in 1980 coming off of the success of their top 5 hit, 'Every Day Hurts' from the top 10 album 'Facades' 

Paul's wife Pat Young, drummer Dave Irving and guitarist Ashley Mulford have supplied their memories of a night that caught Sad Cafe at the height of their performing powers.

They were arguably a band out of time in the new-wave era, but their musicianship and showmanship has stood the test of time.

This set, released in the UK on March 23rd, features a full DVD of the performance and a bonus CD of the entire show. Find Sad Caf' on Facebook here:
