The Lotus Eaters is an English new wave band formed in 1982 in Liverpool. Their debut single "The First Picture of You" became a hit in the UK and Europe, notably France, Italy and Spain.
In September 1981, Peter Coyle (born 25 October 1962) and Jeremy "Jem" Kelly (born in 1962) met for the first time. Kelly had been guitarist in The Systems and co-founded The Wild Swans in 1981. Coyle had previously been in the Jass Babies, who had recorded a session for John Peel's BBC Radio 1 show in 1981.
After an invitation to record a Peel session, a number of new songs were created. Joined on keyboards by Kelly's fellow ex-Wild Swan Ged Quinn and by Scottish drummer John Hendry and bassist Phil Lucking, the session was recorded in October 1982 and included "The First Picture of You". This led to the band being signed by Arista Records. Produced by NigelЧитать далее в Википедии...
