The Darling Buds : Crawdaddy : 1990

The Darling Buds formed in Caerleon near Newport, South Wales, UK in 1986 by the then 19-year-old Andrea Lewis. Their debut single, "If I Said", was released on February 1987 and was well received. The group re-released the single on an established label, Native Records, receiving radio play on John Peel's Radio 1 show. Signing with Sony in 1988, several singles preceded their critically acclaimed 1989 debut LP, Pop Said.... The album ultimately reached the top 30 UK album chart and the band appeared on the cover of Melody Maker twice (24 September 1988 and 18 February 1989). In 1990 the original drummer, Bloss, left the band and was replaced by Jimmy Hughes from Black. Their second album, Crawdaddy, more sophisticated than their first, was not as well received. Pressing forward with their new style, the group followed with their third and final album in 1992, entitled Erotica, a few weeks before Madonna's album of the same name. The album contained the US single "Long Day In The Universe" which was featured on the soundtrack for the Mike Myers movie "So I Married an Axe Murderer". Although they toured the United States in support of the album for a year, the members of the Darling Buds grew increasingly frustrated by their lack of commercial success and disbanded.
