Featuring Ollie Teeba on the decks and touring with the original 8 piece live band* The Herbaliser return to their spiritual Manchester home for a very special Friday night show.

Way back In January 1995, Ollie Teeba and Jake Wherry AKA The Herbaliser, a sample- based beatmaking duo from Twickenham, South West London, released their debut 12” single ‘The Real Killer’ on UK label Ninja Tune. The pair were deeply immersed in Hip Hop culture and heavily into digging around in dusty record bins looking for funky samples. As well as jazz and soul records, they had a particular taste in old movie soundtracks, which would become a particular characteristic of their production sound.

They soon followed up with their first LP, ‘Remedies’ Establishing themselves as one of the main features of the Ninja Tune crew, as they expanded their roster of eclectic artists and DJs.

The following year, as they were recording their second full length release, ‘Blow Your Headphones’, they extended their output to include an 8 piece live band and debuted June 1996 at George IV in Brixton. The Herbaliser Band continued on, touring internationally, to great reception, from diverse audiences and would become regulars at a multitude of electronic, dance, dub and jazz festivals, worldwide, for the next 2 decades or so.
