Little is known about 80's new wave trio, East Of Java . They were presumably formed in 1984 in England whereupon they released their first single ‘Burning Sun’ with RCA records. Spike Scott managed keyboards, with the two other individuals just named as Scott and Platz on the vinyl covers either did vocals or guitar. The group scored a few TV and radio appearances shortly after their first release and particular attention was given to their third release, 'Different World' . Despite positive feedback, the band's singles failed to chart. A lineup change somewhere close to ‘89 saw the switch to a female vocalist, Janet Brown and the release of an album under Plastic Records but East Of Java scored no success because of it and broke up shortly after.
Spike Scott is now a musical composer in Leeds. The locations or indeed identities of Scott and Platz are unknown although Janet Brown is said to now be involved in session work and music event planning.
