Biography

Active: 1980s

This UK ‘indie’ pop group was formed in 1987 by former Shop Assistants singer Alex Taylor (vocals) with ex-Meat Whiplash personnel Michael Kerr (guitar), Paul McDermott (drums), Eddie Connelly (bass) and outsider, ‘Scottie’ (b. David Scott; guitar). Their debut single for Rough Trade Records, ‘Big Rock Candy Mountain’ (formerly a title for Burl Ives), reached number 3 in the UK independent chart. Despite this promising start, and much music press attention, they failed, largely through disorganization, to set the live circuit alight and subsequently broke up soon after the release of their lone album, which was recorded for major label Chrysalis Records. Alex Taylor was reportedly last spotted working as (ironically) a shop assistant for a record store chain.~ Rovi
