Formed in May of 1979, Dance Chapter was a 4AD band that initially consisted of vocalist Cyrus Bruton, bassist Stuart Dunbar, guitarist/pianist/vocalist Steve Hadfield, and drummer Jonnie Lowrence. They debuted in late 1980 with the Anonymity single. A year passed until their next release, the four-song Chapter II EP. It saw the exit of Lowrence and the entrance of John Turner. The band then called it quits in early 1982. Only Turner remained in music, while Hadfield went into pub design and Dunbar entered art school. The only posthumous appearance of the band was 1985's When the Spirit Moves Them, a split release with the Faction released by Pleasantly Surprised.
