Cult garage soul band The Make Up will reform in order to play this May's I'll Be Your Mirror event at London's Alexandra Palace.

The band, fronted by Nation Of Ulysses' Ian Svenonius, released their last studio album, 'Save Yourself', in 1999. This was followed by a live album, 'Untouchable Sound', which was released in 2006, after their split. Following the band's dissolution, Svenonious went on to play in Weird War with The Make-Up bassist Michelle Mae, and then fronted Chain And The Gang.
