June Brides

  • June Brides
  • There Are Eight Million Stories ... (UK Pink Label) 1985 
  • This Town EP (UK In Tape) 1986 
  • The Peel Sessions EP (UK Strange Fruit) 1987 

The London-based Brides play tuneful, madly strummed guitar-pop with trumpet, viola and occasionally striking lyrics. On their seven-song mini-album, singer/guitarist Phil makes the best of a demi-musical voice, while the others race along in almost coherent, loose fashion. Minor but enjoyable.

The Peel Sessions EP was recorded in October 1985.
