Our Bands

Almost Charlotte

Formed by Ian Philipson, Anthony Squires and Bill Russell, the core band was later established with the addition on Matthew Griffin and Nick Fuller running from 1987 to 1990. They were regulars on the Brighton live indie circuit and their sole single (Sleep – MOP 1) later become a sought after collectible by C86 enthusiasts leading to the inclusion of another song on one of Firestation Records’ ‘Sounds of Leamington Spa’ series. ‘I Think Of The Sea’ summarises those years and was released in remastered digital form in 2019

Bluff

Formed by Matthew Griffin, Nick Fuller, Trevor Warman and Trevor Thorne (later replaced by Colin Clifford), Bluff released 2 cassette EP’s on MOP. A harder edged sound than MOP’s Almost Charlotte beginnings, Bluff ran from 1990 to 1992. Bluff are also featured in a summary of those years on ‘I Think Of The Sea’ digitally released and remastered in 2019.

Rogue Beauty

An occasional project by Matthew Griffin, Nick Fuller and friends, Rogue Beauty started in 1999 and continues today. The album ‘Seems Like Yesterday’ gathers together 14 tracks covering previous MOP EP releases as well as many previously unreleased tracks. In 2019 a cover of Adrian Borland’s ‘Walking In The Opposite Direction’ was released as a single.

A Long Valley

A one off project by Nick Fuller with Paul Midcalf, ALV has a darker and more contemplative sound. Released digitally and on CD in 2014

B-Vox

A curiosity from the early 80s! Comprising David Ferguson, John Davidson, Nick Fuller, Paul Creber and Chris Gorham, B-Vox produced some shiny 80s pop rock with big choruses that remained unreleased until our 2019 digital and remastered album ‘Bright Summer Days (Up In The 80s.)

Senses Reeling

An ongoing and eclectic project of Nick Fuller with Paul Midcalf and friends, SR have released 4 EPs since 2012. 2019 sees the release of their first album, preceded by the single ‘Someone Else’ in May.
