Biography

There are two bands by this name:

1. The British hard-rock outfit Little Angels formed in Scarborough, England in 1987 while its members — vocalist/guitarist Toby Jepson, keyboardist Jimmy Dickinson, his guitarist brother Bruce, bassist Mark Plunkett and drummer Dave Hopper — were all attending university.

At the outset, the group was forced to hone their craft primarily in area schools, as Jimmy Dickinson was too young to play clubs. Originally dubbed Mr. Thrud, Little Angels issued their debut mini-LP Too Posh to Mosh (recorded with new drummer Michael Lee) in 1987.

After winning a loyal following on the strength of their live performances, including an opening set for a then-unknown Guns ‘N’ Roses, they were signed to Polydor, releasing the full-length Don’t Prey for Me in 1989. Produced by Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero, 1991’s Young Gods attempted to break Little Angels in America, a move which proved unsuccessful. Still, the group’s fanbase at home continued to grow, and 1993’s Jam even debuted at the top of the British charts. To the surprise of many, Little Angels then disbanded, with the 1994 release of the retrospective Little of the Past marking their passing. The Dickinsons later resurfaced in b.l.o.w.

Lead vocalist Toby Jepson now sings for Scottish rockers - GUN! Jepson also has released 2 EP’s with a view to doing a 3rd this coming summer.

2. The Little Angels is an all-female folk-ballet troupe established by members of the Unification Church to attract positive attention to Korean culture and in particular to act as goodwill ambassadors for South Korea.

    Actually think they should of stayed split up after listening to what I could of that album. Truly awful, especially compared to their other stuff.

    Not keen on the new album, it's definitely no Young Gods.

    Have you heard a new track featuring Little Angels guitar hero Bruce Dickinson? The video is on YouTube search 'Feeling the Fury' or see feelingthefury.com. Song released to download on the 4th of April. Good stuff.

    Due to hackers we have lost everything on the Forums over at Toby Jepson's official site. The forums have now been recreated, but we have lost all posts and user accounts. If everyone could head over and sign up and get some posts going that would be great! Visit www.tobyjepson.com now! Repost this to your profile if possible. Thanks :)

    As some of you will be aware, the band Skin reformed and played Download Festival (Formerly Donington monsters of rock) this year and went down a storm. So the general plan is to try and get the Little Angels to get together to do the same. Obviously for this to evean have the remotest chance of happening we need to support this new group and get the numbers up. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=5797113606

    I loved this band back in the day. I bought all their albums but I don't have any on CD/MP3. I have Too Posh To Mosh somewhere - need to get them back in my collection! Fantastic band

    Amazing band... unpretentious melodic rock that's borne the test of time with more style and grace than most of its contemporaries!
