Stuart Walton

Their first release was a contribution to the various artists compilation “Your Secret’s Safe With Us” in 1982. They came to fame on the cult 1980s Channel 4 music TV show The Tube as part of the show’s Hull music special, and had three hits on the UK Indie Chart with “Naughty Miranda”, “I Wish I Had” and “Jack Pelter & His Sex Change Chicken”. After a fourth single, the “Big Wheel” EP, the band’s only (self-titled) album was released in 1984. The band split up shortly afterwards, with Nozedar forming a new band, The Fever Tree, who released one single, “The Pixie Shop” late in 1985. Riches and Walton reformed the band in 1998 with singer Chris Guard and moved into techno / house territory.
