Biography

United Kingdom (1984 – 1993, 1999 – 2004)

All About Eve is an 80’s British goth rock group with a unique, folk-rock-influenced take on the style. The creative core consists of Julianne Regan (vocals) and Andy Cousin (bass guitar), with other members changing over the years.

Julianne Regan, a former journalist, played bass for the popular rock group Gene Loves Jezebel for a little while. The initial core of All About Eve was Regan, guitarist Tim Bricheno, and bassist Andy Cousin from Aemotti Crii. As a three-piece (plus a drum machine), they released a series of independent singles starting from 1984 including “D For Desire”, “In The Clouds” and “Flowers In Our Hair”. After Julianne sang backing vocals for The Mission’s God’s Own Medicine album, the band received greater attention and were signed to Phonogram. Drummer Mark Price was added around this time.

Their self-titled debut album was released in 1988 and produced the UK hit single Martha’s Harbour. Drawing much of its lyrical material from hippie ideals, white magic and dreamlike fairy tales, the album’s gentle folk rock-inspired pop sound won the band many fans (nicknamed “angels”). Although often falsely lumped by the media under the label of goth rock, little (if any) such inspiration actually played a part in the band’s music after around 1986, any “goth” connection being drawn not from the music, but from the previous and future engagements of the band members in the musical scene of the time.

In a well known incident, the band later performed a dubbed version of Martha’s Harbour on the BBC1 television show Top Of The Pops, but, owing to a studio technical error, the taped vocals were broadcast without the band being able to hear them

    Leider handelt es sich bei dem Gig auf der Kieler Woche nicht um All About Eve sondern um eine Band gleichen Namens, die mit obiger absolut nichts zu tun hat. Die 33 Leute können also zu Hause bleiben. Auf der FB-Seitevon AAE wird darauf ausdrücklich hingewiesen.

    @Earthoscope - I totally agree with you. Nobody seems to be aware of it, but "Ultraviolet" is one of the most unlikely success stories of the shoegaze period, considering the band's extremely dull and generic early years when the only thing they relied on was songwriting, (which was usually fine), and the subtlety, technique and vision of that record were certainly missing. And it's always worth re-sharing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHsJZnP6GDc
