Liam Maher gets back into action...

Ex-FLOWERED UP singer LIAM MAHER has signed to ALAN McGEE's POPTONES record label.

A spokesperson for the label told NME.COM that the first fruits of the signing will be the release of a white label demo of new track 'Greedy Soul', backed by remixes. A release date is yet to be finalised.

NME.COM contacted Maher's manager, Terry McQuaid, who explained what Maher has been doing since the demise of Flowered Up in the mid-'90s.

He said: "After Flowered Up, Liam went into the wilderness to lose himself to find himself. After a summer soul searching in the year 2000, he happily decided to join the gang at Poptones."

It is expected that Maher will make his live debut at Poptones' regular Radio4 club night at the Notting Hill Arts Club in London in March. He does not intend to recruit a full-time band, instead working with different session musicians.

Flowered Up made their name in the early '90s off the back of the Madchester movement, and were often touted as London's version of the Happy Mondays. They released one album entitled 'A Life With Brian', but are perhaps best known for the 'Weekender EP' which followed.
