The Heart Throbs were born in Reading, UK, in the mid 80s. In 1989, after a string of singles on different indies, they signed to [l=One Little Indian] who released their debut album, "Cleopatra Grip," in 1990.

The group toured the album heavily, which took its toll. Mark Side & Rachel Carlotti left the band in late-1990, in the middle of a tense US tour. Noko (bass), and [a=Curve]'s Steve Monti (drums) stepped in to replace them, and stayed with the group for their second album, 1992's "Jubilee Twist."

Their third and final album, "Vertical Smile," was released in 1993. The Heart Throbs had somewhat reinvented themselves into a raw, angry band. On this release Noko and Monti were replaced by Steve 'Bes' Wick (drums) and Colleen Browne (bass, later to appear in [a=Pale Saints]). The group played their final UK show on December 8th of that year, before disbanding.
