Last month, Mavers made a surprise appearance in Manchester, accompanied on bass by Gary Murphy, formerly of Liverpool band The Bandits. He is also due to appear as part of The La's at a number of festival dates this summer, including Bestival and Rock En Seine in Paris.

The seminal Liverpool band made a short-lived return in 2005, but despite rumours regularly resurfacing as to any future for the band, their sole 1990 album has never been followed up.

As far back as 2006, sometime bandmember John Power was vague about the existence of any follow-up record. He said that Mavers was: "still tinkering with something that’s majestic," adding that of any release date, "I can't tell you where and when… 'cause whatever he does, whether it’s in this lifetime or the next, it can’t be rushed."

A mooted line-up of The La's featuring members of Babyshambles never emerged. A collection of singles, B-sides, out-takes and rarities, 'Callin' All' was released last year.
