The March Violets, Die Laughing
The band originally started their musical journey in 1982 as one of Leeds’ four famous ‘drum machine bands’. The other three being Merciful Release labelmates 'The Sisters of Mercy', 'Red Lorry Yellow Lorry' and 'The Three Johns'.
Fronted by the two pronged attack of dual vocalists Simon D and Rosie Garland, the band built a large and loyal following throughout the UK and Europe. They released five singles/EP’s, first on Merciful Release then on their own Rebirth label… culminating in the successful indie chart topping 'Snakedance' and 'Walk Into The Sun'.
