Musicians
    (1980- )
    Formed in Leeds, England
    Original members include:
    Gary Marx - guitar
    Andrew Eldritch - vocals/drums
    Craig Adams - bass
    Released 'First and Last and Always,' 'Floodland,' 'More,' 'Vision Things,' 'Some Girls Wander By Mistake' and 'Greatest Hits Volume One: A Slight Case Of Overbombing'
    They recorded their first single to 'hear ourselves on the radio.'
    They described their first album as being 'unobtainable and even more unlistenable.'
    After Andrew gave up on trying to play the drums, they bought themselves a drum machine, which they named Doktor Avalanche.
    Andrew was falsely reported dead by the English press after he left his native England to live in Germany (1987).
    They call their fans 'their Sisters.'
    They upset many of their fans when they went on strike for 5 years after having contract disputes with their record label, East West.
    They're one of the most loved Goth rock bands ever, ranking right up there with Bauhaus and Skinny Puppy.
    They've been described as combining 'melancholy melodies with inky imagery.'
    After only two years as a band, they were scoring number 1 hits in the UK and being awarded 'Record Of The Week' by the BBC after every single.
    They are thought of as the 'Most Bootlegged Band' of the 80's.
    Although being on strike, they still toured and did festivals.
    They've toured with the Depeche Mode, Motorhead and the Stooges.
