A band of four square men. Manchester-based.
Their music reflects their relationship with each other over a seven year period.
Two singles released on Factory Records, which, when combined, reached No. 1 on the Independent chart.
The last six years spent sharpening their songs, with the occasional tour as support to New Order and The Smiths.
Signed worldwide by Seymour Stein’s Sire label, with Blanco Y Negro in collaboration in the UK, for a modest advance on 11.11.84, in return for their independence in the material world.
The single “Chain Mail” was released in February 1986. The LP Stutter is released in August 1986. Both produced by Lenny (Suzanne Vega) Kaye.
A second album, Strip Mine, released 8.9.88. Produced by Hugh Jones. Features the cuts “What For”, “Medieval”, “Not There” and “Return”.
Looking forward to meeting your aquaintance.
