A Guy Called Gerald has reportedly revealed that acid house pioneers 808 State may reform with their original lineup.


The Manchester group was formed in 1988 by Graham V Massey, Gerald Simpson and Martin Price, but Simpson left a year later to perform as A Guy Called Gerald.


According to Exclaim, Simpson revealed plans for a reunion at a recent Red Bull Music Academy interview.


It is unclear whether a reunion would include Price, who left the group in 1992, or if a comeback will involve new recordings as well as live shows.


Simpson has promised an official announcement in the coming months.


A Guy Called Gerald reached number 12 in the UK singles charts in 1988 with 'Voodoo Ray', while 808's 'Pacific State' went to number ten a year later.
