Biography

Formed in early-‘80s London, the band were initially a trio centred around singer Jim Shepherd. After sending a demo tape to Melody Maker, the band were recruited by Alan McGee to record for the fledgling Creation label. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1985, and in 1986 the band recorded their only Peel session. Further albums Another Age (1988) and Scratch the Surface (1989) drew critical acclaim before the band split. They reunited in 2000, releasing the album Veritas, before the band signed to McGee’s Poptones label for the release of Popartglory (2001).

2010 released an EP on Jim Shepherds ‘Oatcake” label with collaboration projects by Sleepyard and Mike Garson, plus a mini album with APB titled Jaguar.

    World's No Place is a magnificent song. A great band with infectious guitar pop tunes, sadly incredibly underheard but the epitome of indie. If only more people knew how great they are.

    Whadda ya want? A medal? Cut Me Deep is one of the best songs from the mid-1980s. And I'm not just saying that for sentimental reasons.
