New single from the June Brides
The June Brides were among the best, and best loved of the C86 bands from the UK from 1983 to 1986. To the delight of their old and new fans, the band's front man, Phil Wilson, has revived the group. Their first recording is a double A-side "A January Moon/Cloud", on Slumberland Records in the US and Occultation in the UK. You can sample both tracks below.
"A January Moon" --
In addition to Wilson (guitar/vocals), the current iteration includes original members Frank Sweeney (viola), John Hunter (trumpet), and Simon Beesley (guitar/vocals). Phil's recent projects under his own name have included Andy Fonda (drums) and Arash Torabi (bass/vocals), and I suspect they were involved on these recordings as well.
