By Angela Cole

He was one of 80s icons Frankie Goes to Hollywood, the band whose debut single Relax was banned by the BBC and went to No.1 for five weeks.

Brian “Nasher” Nash was the guitarist with the group who also brought the world Relax and Two Tribes, fronted by Holly Johnson and Paul Rutherford.

More than 30 years later, music fans can spend an evening with Nasher as he plays Maidstone’s Pizza Express this month.

He formed Sons and Egypt with Peter Gill and Holly Johnson before joining Frankie Goes to Hollywood.

The band broke up in 1987, and he has since released solo albums Ripe in 1999 and Le Grande Fromage in 2002, as well as written a book, Nasher Says Relax, published in 2012.

He has just released his fourth album, 432-1: Open The Vein. His live show has developed into a set of acoustic songs and the stories behind their inception.

An Evening With Nasher will be at Pizza Express in Earl Street, Maidstone, on Saturday, January 13. Tickets cost £12. To book visit pizzaexpresslive.com/whats-on/nasher
