Last Call

THE FICKLE pop world has been kind to Deacon Blue, who decided to reform for a one-off charity gig, only to add another date when demand exceeded all expectation. Since their break-up, some of the founding band members have forged new careers. Ricky Ross has gone solo, while Dougie Vipond can be seen presenting on TV, so despite a surprising number of hit singles, such as "Fergus Sings the Blues", "Real Gone Kid" and "Wages Day", and five million album sales to their credit, it's uncertain whether a permanent reunion is on the cards.
