Again an unforgettable but forget band from the early 80s ("As very little information - or no information at all - is to be found by this brilliant and innovative group" Last fm) with a sound somewhere around The Chameleons (not so folk-like),Killing Joke (not so wild),early Duran Duran (not so easy listening), The Church arond '84-'85 ( for example the beautiful "Winterscene") .Can you imagine the band Tenploe Tudor playing synth-pop ("Human Factor") and Michael Cretu playing as a guest musician with his '83 sound in the song "Madness At The Mission"? And so on.
"Founded in Leeds circa 1979 by Mark Copson (Vocals), David Whitaker (Keyboards), Martin King (Bass) and Christopher Oldroyd (Drums). (Obviously) influenced by the punk scene, Kraftwerk and Krautrock and sounding very "new wave-ish" they went on to release a couple of singles on the Rage label. "(from Last fm.)
Their first released 7" single was "the human factor / madness at the mission (Rage records label) in 1980 .In 1982 they contracted with Polydor (Martin King was replaced by Ivor Roberts)and released their first Lp "Into The Rain", was produced by legendary Mike Hedges (responsible for The Cure, The Banshees, Associates, The Passions, and many more).
The second Lp is from 1983 called "Blacklands".
"After a possible downslide in sales etc, Polydor dropped them in 1983. They went on to release several records on their own label called Whirlpool, before disbanding in 1985.Mark Copson and David Whitaker have been involved with The Danse Society (circa '86), and drummer Christopher Oldroyd appeared on Red Lorry Yellow Lorry's "Paint The Wagon" (circa '87)."(Last fm)
If you want something special and outstanding music between new-wave and synth-pop don't miss it!!!! You won't be disappointed!!

PAULINE MURRAY & THE STORM Leeds-based new wave rockers comprising Mark Copson (vocals), David Whitaker (synth), Martin King (bass) and Chris Oldroyd (drums).
