1978 – present (40 years)
Liverpool, Merseyside, England, United Kingdom
Perhaps the most misunderstood band to record for Factory, The Royal Family & The Poor remain for many an (oc)cult enigma, releasing only four albums in two decades, and rarely performing live after 1984. In fact the oblique band moniker masks the identity of just one man, Mike Keane, whose chequered history is a complicated tale of perseverance in the face of adversity.
