Leeds, 1983. Three tearaway school mates are skipping school to listen to Hendrix, MC5, The Stooges, Lou Reed and daydreaming about becoming rock stars. But even the most idealistic adolescent couldn’t have guessed just how quickly those dreams would become reality. 

The band name arrived in early ‘84 and just 12 months later, having not yet played a gig, this fresh-faced ragtag band were in the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios recording their own John Peel session. 

Young, naive, and still learning their craft, however right from the off they were churning out finely tuned slabs of sleazy, guitar-driven goth rock that belied their age and experience. Peel loved them and followed the BBC1 session by placing the bands first single “L.A.Rain” at number 26 in his 1985 Festive 50, above songs by The Cure, The Smiths and The Sisters of Mercy.
