THE MARCH VIOLETS came out of Leeds in the early 80’s, initially as label- mates of Sisters of Mercy. Releasing six singles, they were a constant presence at the heights of the UK indie charts.

They didn’t get around to recording an album – their only long-players, both in the UK and USA, were singles compilations. They eventually signed to a major and were groomed for a USA breakthrough, but found they were asked to make too many compromises.

Thankfully, their career was well-documented by the BBC recording six sessions – three for John Peel, and one each with Kid Jensen, Janice Long and Richard Skinner. Chronicling their development from 1982 to 1986 with lead singers Simon, Rosie and Cleo, these sessions include nine unreleased songs and alternate versions of their indie hits. Here is the unheard history of The March Violets.

Side One: 1. Radiant Boys, 2. Steam, 3. 1 2 I Love You, 4. Grooving In Green, 5. Crow Baby, 6. The Undertow.

Side Two: 1. Strange Head, 2. Slow Drip Lizard, 3. Walk Into The Sun, 4. Deep, 5. Kill The Delight.

Side Three: 1. Big Soul Kiss, 2. Lights Go Out, 3. Love Hit, 4. Don’t Take It Lightly, 5. Electric Shades, 6. The Face Of The Dragonfly.

Side Four: 1. Snake Dance, 2. Deep, 3. High Times, 4. Close To The Heart, 5. South Country, 6. Avalanche Of Love. - Recorded for the BBC between 1982 – 1986
