1. Product Details

He Complete Singles 1982 - 85 & More, on limited Purple vinyl gatefold 2LP. Includes indie chart-toppers Snake Dance, Deep and Walk into the Sun 7" versions. Twenty-two tracks - all their '80's repertoire plus three highlights from this century. From Leeds, friends and label-mates of Sisters of Mercy, they issued six singles & a compilation. THE March Violets came out of Leeds in the early 80's. Releasing six singles, they were a constant presence in the UK indie charts, hitting the top two spots with Snake Dance, Deep and number one with Walk Into The Sun. They never got around to recording an album - their only '80's long-players, Natural History in the UK and Electric Shades in the USA, were compilations. Eventually they signed to a major label and were groomed for a USA breakthrough, performing in the 1987 'Some Kind of Wonderful' movie. However they were asked to make too many compromises and eventually split up. Here is all their 1980's independent catalogue compiled in the original versions, together with three tracks from this century. It chronicles their development with lead singers Simon Denbigh, Rosie Garland and Cleo Murray and backed by bassist Lawrence Elliot and guitarist Tom Ashton.
