London-based four-piece indie-pop band formed in 1993. Very successful at the peak of Britpop in the mid-90's scoring a debut number one album (knocking [a=Oasis (2)]'s (What's The Story) Morning Glory? from the top spot and just missing out on a number one single with "Slight Return" (arguably their most famous song), being kept away by [a=Babylon Zoo]'s "Spaceman" (featured in a Levi's TV ad). Scott joked that he actually bought a copy of "Spaceman".

In their early days they shared a house in Hounslow with [a=Dodgy].

They decided to call it a day in 2011 with a farewell tour. Mark continued to record and tour solo material.

Eds went to school with [a=Gem Archer] of [a=Heavy Stereo] and, more famously, [a=Oasis (2)].
