'Reverence': Faithless honoured with a plaque at the Jazz Cafe

Forget your Mercurys and your MOBOs – chart-bothering rave outfit Faithless have just found themselves the lucky recipients of a PRS plaque.

Since 2009, the PRS Heritage Award has conferred recognition on spaces where celebrated artists got their big break. Acts to previously get a plaque in their honour include the good (Soul II Soul), the bad (Snow Patrol) and the ugly (sorry, Jethro Tull). Faithless are to have their 1996 Jazz Cafe gig – their first full live performance – honoured with a plaque in the venue. Faithless’ rise subsequent the gig was very swift indeed; by 1997, breakthrough hit ‘Insommnia’ had become a global smash.

Faithless high priestess Sister Bliss said: “We had some unforgettable nights in Camden, the local scene was always edgy and groundbreaking and we loved it. Electronic music was finally getting some broader recognition too and it was an exciting time for us. The Jazz Café is really important to our story and where our live career took off. We’re so honoured to be getting this Heritage award with them and celebrating where it all started. Can’t believe it’s been 15 years!”
