The Godfathers reunited their original line-up to reissue an expanded 21st anniversary edition of their debut album Hit By Hit in January 2008, which had been repackaged to include 19 extra tracks.

After 19 years away from the world’s stage the original classic line-up of The Godfathers reformed to play some selected dates to promote the reissue of their seminal debut album ‘Hit By Hit’. The influential 80s band were regarded as the finest exponents of Brit-based rock ‘n’ roll and were unanimously hailed as one of the finest live acts in the world.

The Hit By Hit album comprises all the single recordings from the band’s early career on their own independent label Corporate Image, augmented with studio and live extra tracks culled from international live shows and BBC Radio One Sessions.

In March 2009 guitarist Kris Dollimore left the band for a second time and finally in December 2009 original members George Mazur and Mike Gibson followed.
