The timeless tunes of Mike + The Mechanics. In the 1980s and 1990s Mike Rutherford's supergroup, designed as a side project to Genesis, scored hit after hit Three decades on from starting out, the band is back with two new vocalists, a new album and single and a 32 date UK tour. SOUNDBITE, VOCALIST ANDREW ROACHFORD, SAYING (English): "Obviously I was not sure how it would be received but it's been received really well and I think people understand that me and Tim are singers in our own right and we bring something different to it and we are getting a lot of love from the Mechanics fans." Rutherford says the band's most famous Ivor Novello-winning song The Living Years, about a man's strained relationship with his deceased father, still resonates with live audiences. SOUNBITE, MIKE RUTHERFORD, SAYING (English): 'Living Years is one of those songs I mean, at shows they come to, you see people on the front few rows and someone's crying, you know. It sounds wrong to say 'nice to see someone crying' but actually it means it touched them. Guitarist Rutherford was also a core member of rock band Genesis throughout various incarnations, and echoed Phill Collins' recent comments that he wouldn't rule out a reunion. SOUNBITE, MIKE RUTHERFORD, SAYING (English): 'We are still all very good friends and I value that very much, including Peter Gabriel, we have remained very good friends and that's the way to start really, but who knows, you never know!' Mike and the Mechanics' new album Let Me Fly is released on April 7
