Formed in Wolverhampton, England in 1985, the Mighty Lemon Drops' psychedelic post-punk pop earned the group frequent comparisons to Echo & the Bunnymen. The quartet, which consisted of vocalist Paul Marsh, guitarist David Newton, bassist Tony Linehan and drummer Keith Rowley, debuted in 1986 with Happy Head, followed a year later by Out of Hand. After 1988's World Without End, the Mighty Lemon Drops set about recording 1989's Laughter; during sessions for the LP, Linehan quit the band, and was replaced by bassist Marcus Williams, who remained with the group throughout their final two studio efforts, 1991's Sound and 1992's Ricochet. All the Way, an album of demos and live recordings from a show in Cincinnati, was released in 1993, following the group's dissolution; Newton went on to form a new group, Revolux, in Los Angeles. ~ Richard SkellyPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
