There are two artists named Po!:- an indie band and an electronic musician/ remixer
1. Po! was an indie band formed in Leicester, UK, in 1987, with releases dating up to 1997 on Rutland Records.
Po! was originally formed by Ruth Miller (vocals and guitar), with Julian Glover (bass) and Mark Fuccio (drums). They are usually listed under the C86 or twee pop headings. The themes of misogyny, disappointment, and nostalgia act as a counterpoint to the vocals, melodies, and jangly guitars so characteristic of the genre.
Ruth spent two years playing with Ruth's Refrigerator, before reconstituting Po! with Terri Lowe (guitar), Paul Knight (drums), and Gary Gilchrist (bass), in which configuration they produced album Ducks and Drakes, and several EPs.
In 1994 the band recorded a John Peel session, and two years later there followed an LP Not Marked on the Ordnance Map, by which time Gilchrist had left and Lowe taken on bass and guitar duties. In 1997 The Alphabet EP was released, which the NME journalist Steven Wells made Single of the Week.
Miller, who played the character of Bridget in the comedy soap opera "Chez Lester", broadcast on the Cable 7 community TV channel, and Lowe are now married with two children. Ruth works as a deputy headmistress.
2. po! is a remixer and electronic musician, who has released many songs on the Internet.
