Delirious? -Glo (2000)
Who’d have thought back in the day when we watched the as yet un-named ‘Delirious?’ play from the back of a flatbed on Littlehampton seafront for the annual ‘Cutting Edge’ summer thing, that twenty-five years later, the band would be on the verge of releasing their entire back catalogue on vinyl for the world they took by storm?
Long opener yes. But that’s about the nub of it. Martin Smith, worship leader of a small West Sussex Pioneer fellowship took Delirious to world-wide fame; one of the most successful Christian bands of all time with songs widely sung in Sunday morning church services all over the globe.
Delirious? formally disbanded in 2009 following a sell-out live performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo. But their music lives on and the release this year of the back-catalogue on vinyl will make sure of that. ‘Glo’ was their third studio album.
