During the 1980’s Basil Clarke led the now legendary Manchester quartet Yargo whose original style fused a subtle mix of jazz, funk and reggae with pop sensibilities into their own innovative sound that led to them developing a fiercely loyal fanbase and following for their wonderful live sets. 

In 1987 Yargo signed to London Records and released Communicate in 1989 which included the landmark track The Other Side of Midnight which featured as the title and soundtrack to Granada TV’s late night arts program hosted by the late great Anthony H. Wilson.Those who had the good fortune to see Yargo live were privy to some of the most scintillating live performances possible. Band on the Wall is now delighted to present founder Basil Clarke live at one of Yargo’s favourite venues – Band on the Wall.
