- The Blue Hearts [UK]
Brighton-based rock band formed in 1988 by Bob Powell and Mark Horse. They've dubbed the new sound 'Neon Rock', an eclectic mix of brash eclectic rock 'n' roll tones with the sleazy intimacy of a late night speakeasy. Featuring pop tunes, hard rock and provocative lyrics mixed with ethereal harmonies and a whirlwind of guitar sounds, pedal-steel and crashing surf ambience.
Current line-up includes Bob Powell (Vocals & lyrics), Mark Horse (Lead Guitar), Mike Fitzsimons (Guitar/backing vocals), Sue Bradley (Violin/vocals), Torquil MacLeod (Bass/backing vocals) and Will Moore (Drums).
