LAST GREAT DREAMERS OFFICIAL WEBSITE
Welcome to the Official Website for UK's Glam-Tinged Power-Pop Rockers!
Last Great Dreamers with their distinctly British take on power-pop are probably the UK rock scene's best kept secret. They built a formidable live reputation in the mid 90’s with their shimmering glam style. Their debut album Retrosexual, a love letter to the early '70s glam scene, caught the attention of Kerrang! magazine, resulting in an awards nomination for 'best new band’ before tragedy and disillusionment forced the band to call it a day.
In 2014 they staged a fabulous comeback releasing an album of rarities, the critically acclaimed ‘Crash Landing In Teenage Heaven’ and have since in 2015 toured with Runaway’s singer Cherie Currie & in 2016 opened for bands such as the Darkness, Terrorvision, Hey Hello & Tigertailz and released 2 brand new singles ‘Dope School’, & 'Glitterball Apocalypse’ both achieving no.1 status on the TBFM/HRH radio network charts.
Promoting their 3rd album Transmission From Oblivion, which received rave reviews in both Classic Rock & Vive Le Rock magazines to name a few, in 2017 LGD took to the road on a hugely successful 20 date UK tour as special guests to The Quireboys firmly cementing their reputation as a class live act full of energy, emotion, grit & glamour! Also that year they played the main stages at Cambridge Rock Festival & HRHAOR Festivals in UK & Ibiza!
In 2018 LGD released their 4th album '13th Floor Renegades' to wide critical acclaim being described as "possibly the band's finest hour". They have relentlessly toured including their 1st trips to Spain & Norway as well as a spring UK tour & numerous festivals & support slots with the likes of The Alarm & Dan Baird.
