The Darling Buds

Long-defunct U.K. indie-pop outfit The Darling Buds will reunite for the second time in 20 years next spring for a one-off concert in London that’s being billed as “Pop Said… Again,” a reference to the group’s 1988 debut Pop Said…, which featured the singles “Shame On You,” “Burst” and “Hit the Ground.”

The concert is set for April 19 at London’s Borderline, and finds frontwoman Andrea Lewis joined by original bassist Chris McDonogh and Matt Gray, who played guitar on 1992’s Erotica album. According to the show’s promoter, the Borderline performance “truly is planned as a one-off gig” and that there are no further touring plans for the band.

Since the band’s breakup in 1993, Lewis previously only has reunited the group once, performing a pair of shows in 2010.

Tickets for the Boderline concert are on sale now.
