THE LA’S BROADCAST?

Fourteen years after the band gave us their only album, it looks like there may well be a follow-up...

THE LA’S are rumoured to be reforming this year, with the possibility of a new album and live shows.

Over the last week, rumours in the band’s hometown of Liverpool are that founder members Lee Mavers and John Power had been seen out together and are collaborating again.

One fan, emailing NME.COM wrote: “Met them at the The Zutons gig at Liverpool Uni the other day, sound fellas. Lee said they’re best mates again, drinking and going out together. Interestingly, Lee said they were working together on new material and to look forward to gigs within the next few months and material within the next year or so!”

A source close to the band has since confirmed that the pair are working together again, but said there are currently no definite plans. It is not clear whether the other members of the band are involved.

The La’s released their debut album in 1990 and it was instantly declared a classic, spawning the single ‘There She Goes’. The fact that it was never followed up has only added to its legend. After the band split, bassist John Power went on to enjoy success in his own right with Cast, while Mavers has remained a virtual recluse.
