Biography

At long last a band is being recognised for the influence it has had without the commercial acclaim that some of their songs deserved.
This seminal Bristol band consisted of a nucleus of Chris Galvin (bass) and David Woodward (vocals and guitars) with Bob Morris (drums) plus various others during their ten years of existence.
Through various styles they created a unique Bristol slant on the 80’s which was never deemed glamorous by the press or music gliterrati in general. Some may say that the Bristol scene was insular but it was really about being yourself and getting on with things. Many nights spent in The Dug Out and a vast musical taste gave the band a depth beyond a “jangly guitar sound”.
The band started making quality music in the early 80s with She’s Got Fever (7”) released in Feb 1984 with The B side, Black water.
Chris and David moved on to become The Experimental Pop Band. Again, a band ahead of their time and needing to be appreciated more. Explore and you will not be disappointed. Try to catch them live to feel the real sound.

    oh nice! oh and maybe you know why the top tracks on here are the top tracks? were they on a compilation at one point somewhere? because it just seems like an odd mix of songs, at least to me it does...

    @timahall: YEAH! right on! although it is their best album, i think their best/my favorite song of theirs is "Why Do You Have To Go Out With Him When You Could Go Out With Me". what would you say yours is?

    Would love to hear "Rope In My Hand" which I think was from their first ep (could be wrong). Great band live too. People should check out The Experimental Pop Band who Davey fronted as well.

    As a rather pathetic indie loving teen, I had an on and off letter writing penpalship with Davey from the Corners. I was always stunned that he could be arsed to write to some random teenager in East Yorkshire. Gawd bless him. Btw, their finest release IMHO is the seminal Fruit Machine EP.

    A classic and cruelly under-rated pop band. Amazing live, too!
