Yet another victim in the misplaced hype of British music journalists, the Bardots formed in the East Anglia area of England in 1989. Simon Dunford (guitar/vocals), Andy Murphy (guitar), Steve Cox (bass), and Neil Cox (drums) had begun playing together in university and in 1990 released their debut single, Sofaelaine, a flexi-disc release. After their first more "official" single, Sad Anne, the band added a fifth member (Krzysztof Fijalkowski on guitar) and got a deal with Cheree Records. Their debut full-length, Eye Baby, got some underground support, and the British music press dubbed them a "next big thing." In 1994, with Murphy no longer with the band (replaced by Yves Altana), their long-awaited follow-up, V-Neck, appeared. The album failed to make an impact, and the group faded away.
