The Asphalt Ribbons were a UK band that formed in 1988. They were the band that went on to become Tindersticks, featuring vocalist Stuart Staples, keyboardist David Boulter and violinist Dickon Hinchcliffe and others.
They released a few singles and EPs that went completely unnoticed at the time, as well as the short album "Old Horse" that did not do much better. Their sound is more country-ish than Tindersticks, but already features the distinctive vocals of Stuart Staples.
