Forming in the summer of 1987 in London, England. Partners Harriet Wheeler (vocals) and David Gavurin (guitar) recruited their friends Paul Brindley (bass) and Patrick Hannan (dums). Wheelers amazing vocals and the bands lo-fi style sound was likened to that of the Cocteau Twins, Lush and The Smiths. The bands first couple of live gigs in 1988 attracted the attention of the British music press and were soon being touted as the next big thing. Their debut album, Reading Writing & Arithmetic, was released to widespread critical acclaim in 1989 and became a strong commercial success. Following their global tour in 1990 the band laid low until the release of their second album in 1992, Blind, which again was very warmly received by the British music press and public. Unfortunately for the fans it was to be another five years before the band's third album, Static & Silence, was released. During their five-year absence from the music world, Gavurin and Wheeler married and had a child. At the moment there is no news on the band, although it is doubtful there will be any future recordings or live performances.
