Dr & The Medics
Main Stage, Sunday 2015
Doctor & the Medics are best known for their new wave remake of Norman Greenbaum's Spirit in the Sky, a number one single in the U.K. Doctor & the Medics had already existed years before they released this cover. Clive Jackson (AKA The Doctor) formed the band in the early '80s with Steve Maguire (guitar), Richard Searle (bass), backup singers Wendi and Collette, and Vom (drums). Along with The Cult and Gene Loves Jezebel, the band was part of a '60s psychedelic revival, one that incorporated a gothic look and sound.
The band are releasing their first single for 25 years this May—Dead or Alive’s You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) gets medicated!!
In recent years the band have been relentlessly touring and building up a reputation as a great live act and, as a result, now have a very busy schedule with festivals, concerts and events. The current line up and show are possibly the strongest in the band’s 34 year history. It is against this backdrop that the Doctor felt it time to showcase the band’s talents with the release of a new single.
