Biography

Following the sensational break up of The Loft, Peter Astor (vocals, guitar) and Dave Morgan (drums) immediately formed The Weather Prophets. An early incarnation saw Creation Records head-honcho Alan McGee playing bass, but he soon reverted to manager as new members David Greenwood Goulding (bass) and Oisin Little (guitar) were recruited to complete the line up.

The debut single, “Almost Prayed” (Creation, 1986), seemed to carry on where The Loft had left off; consequently both interest and critical approval were high for the record, and a second single was issued on Creation that same year.
For the release of their debut album, McGee had successfully managed to sign the band to Elevation Records - the WEA subsidiary with which he was associated. Expectations were high when Mayflower appeared in 1987, but the album was greeted with a mixed response by the critics and the band were eventually dropped from the label.
All was not lost, however, as they eventually returned to Creation for a further album, Judges, Juries and Horsemen in 1988. By this time, Oisin Little had departed, and interest in the band had waned. A final single, “Always the Light”, was issued before the band decided to split up.
