Originally formed in May 1992, Mathew Apostle (b. Mathew Apostle; bass, vocals) and Luke Apostle (b. William Logan; vocals, guitar) had previously worked together on a variety of musical projects. Based in Scotland, the duo added Mark Apostle (b. Martain Sweeny; keyboards) and John Apostle (b. Scott Watson; drums) to complete the line-up - adopting first names to produce a neat biblical reference point. Inspired by an amalgam of XTC, Steve Vai, Sting and Sandie Shaw, the group swiftly built a local following before embarking on national dates in 1994. In February they released a version of ‘Always Something There To Remind Me’ in tribute to Shaw, but the record failed to appear in the charts. Almost immediately afterwards the group broke up.
