Christchurch 5 piece (from the mid to late 80’s) originally started life as a 4 piece with Blair Parkes, Campbell Taylor, Easther McNaughton and Brett Lupton.
Lupton was later replaced by Bert Aldridge and the band also acquired Stephen McIntyre.
The band were a favorite support act for visiting Flying Nun Records bands and eventually released an EP on that label. The band did have a knack for a good melodic hook, but had an off putting feyness to them occasionally.
McIntyre straightened the band out a lot with his well crafted simple tunes, perfectly captured in the wonderful ‘Actifed Blues‘.
