Biography

There are two bands with the name The Darling Buds:

(1) The Darling Buds were an indie band from Caerleon near Newport, Wales. The band were formed in 1986 and took their name from a British novel called The Darling Buds of May.

(2) A British band, fronted by actor Jamie Campbell Bower whose music is Alternative Indie Rock.

(1) Influenced by the catchy simpler sound of the early Beatles, the band created very melodic hook driven short duration singles. They were considered part of the short lived “Blonde” movement(bands that were fronted by blondes with the band members dressed in black) along with the like of The Primitives but also referenced the C86 scene of a few years earlier.

Whilst the band were not hugely successful, they did manage to score a number of notable hits in their native UK and managed to release three full length albums as listed below:

Pop Said - Epic 1988

Crawdaddy - Epic 1990

Erotica - Epic 1992

They also released numerous 7” & 12” vinyl/cd singles. The release of their 1992 cd caused some minor controversy when it was released several months prior to Madonna’s cd of the same title. For more information go to:
