Josef K man to make rare live appearance in London

Paul Haig to perform with Nouvelle Vague

Former Josef K singer Paul Haig is set to make a rare public appearance with French covers band Nouvelle Vague in London later this week.

Haig will sing his 1981 classic ‘Sorry For Laughing’ with the band at their Camden Roundhouse gig on Friday (October 16). The French band recorded a lounge-style version of the song on their 2004 self-titled debut.

Singer Barry Adamson is also expected to join Nouvelle Vague on the night.


Speaking about the performance in a statement, Haig said: “My manager has been in close contact with Nouvelle Vague for a while now and whilst I didn’t manage to get over to Paris to sing on their recent album [‘3’] they always give me the option to meet up when their schedule brings them to these shores.
