History

The band was formed in 1986 with a line-up of Jeremy Paige (vocals, guitar), Dominic Crane (guitar, keyboards), Phil Edwards (bass guitar), and Rupert Knowlden (drums).[1] Their first release was the track "Theatre King" on the Pink Label's Beauty compilation.[2] The band had an Indie hit single with "Tugboat Line" in 1987 followed by releases on Summerhouse Records ("Medicine" in 1988 and "Don't Leave Me" in 1989). The band signed to Atlantic Records imprint East West Records in 1991, releasing a self-titled album in 1992. A retrospective album of early singles called 1234 The Early Singles was released in 2006. Several tracks were also included on compilations (Beauty, It Sells or it Smells, The Sound Of Leamington Spa Vol. 6). Members of the band went on to form Low Art Thrill.
