Indie group hailing from Liverpool, UK.
Active from 1993 to 2005. Reformed later 2011.
Highly successful during the Britpop years. At their very peak in 1998 their original drummer, Andy Pearle, left the band wanting to commit to a more "cultish" act. Leon Caffrey stepped into the stool as his replacement.
Mysteriously the band were shunned by a nervous record company who delayed their third album, and eventually shelved it completely. Tension grew and Jamie Murphy quit in 2002. Their fourth album was released in 2004 with hardly any attention from the world, and finally the band decided to call it a day in 2005 when Palmer walked out, vowing never to return.
In 2011 the band, minus Dave "Yorkie" Palmer, decided to reform with sights on recording a new album and a full UK tour. Jamie only played a handful of gigs during the initial reformation in 2011.
David Palmer is also credited using his nickname Yorkie on some releases.
