Biography

Formed in 1991 in Essex, England, Sunscreem was one of the first rave-pop groups with live performance abilities as well. Formed around Paul Carnell and Lucia Holm (both vocals and keyboards), with a handful of contributors including Darren Woodford and Wayne Simms (guitars), Rob Fricker (bass) and Sean Wright (drums), among others.
Lucia Holm was a session cellist, and when she met Carnell at a warehouse rave in Essex they agreed to form a band. Early independent singles and “Walk On” and “Pressure” were medium hits in Britain, and in 1993, “Love U More”, and “Perfect Motion” from their debut album, 03 (which got major distribution by Columbia/Sony), became their trademark song and biggest hit to date. They were heavily remixed and bootlegged at the time, with Perfect Motion (Boys Own remix) a stand-out track.
Despite their disappearance from the charts since mid-90´s, Sunscreem are still active, and released some more albums since then: Change or Die (1996), Ten Mile Bank (2001) and the collection Looking at You: Club Anthems, among others.

    Such an amazing Band and I agree, they should have had way more listeners than what is currently shown on here. Sunscreem - O3 was truly an awesome Musical release!

    O3 remains an all time fave. Just listened to it for the first time in a year (and found my missing copy of DJ Shadow's 'The Private Press' in its cover!) and am love with it all over again. Love U More remains a truly euphoric, flawless song.

    Lots of "new" (re-released) SS tracks on iTunes at the moment. Includes for the first time many more obscure remixes. Another nice thing is that they are DRM free. Only catch I can see is that they won't play on most other MP3 players aside from Apple's - but you could re-rip them to MP3/ogg at a pinch.

    Will they ever make music again?

    My sister and I share very little in music taste, but one thing we agree on is that Sunscreem puts a smile on our faces. I love this music as much today as when I first heard it. As I write I am listening to the start of 'looking at you' from Change or Die, and shivers go up my spine.

    Hi, In a nut-shell I'm hunting for a slower than the single, moody, down-tempo version of 'Broken English' It came free on a magazine mix tape in the early 90's. It started with singing then concluded with a throbbing,bleepy, instrumental section. I've been looking for over a decade for this. If you can help, mail me (Might have been 'Sandstorm' mix?)

    Change or Die was pivotal in developing my love of electronic music. Many thanks!

    It would be rude for me not to post a shout here wouldn't it? Be good to hear from Adam and anyone else from back in the days of the mailing list and Adam's website!
