Hummingbirds In-depth Biography

Although criminally unknown outside of their native Australia, the Hummingbirds'} dreamy boy-girl harmonies and refreshing jangle-pop sound positioned them among the brightest bands of their era. The group formed in 1986 from the remnants of the short-lived Bug Eyed Monsters}, and originally comprised singer/guitarist Simon Holmes}, bassist John Boyce and drummer Mark Temple}; vocalist/guitarist Alannah Russack} signed on a short time later, and after signing to the indie label Phantom, the group debuted in mid-1987 with the single "Alimony."} Boyce} soon departed, and with the subsequent addition of singer/bassist Robyn St. Clare}, the classic Hummingbirds} lineup was in place. After three more 1988 singles -- "Everything You Said,"} "Swim to Shore"} and "Hindsight"} -- the band signed to the rooART label, and with noted producer Mitch Easter} entered the studio to record their 1989 debut LP, the superb loveBUZZ}. When the album became a hit down under, it was licensed for U.S. release by the Polygram label; however, despite excellent reviews, the LP stiffed, and the Hummingbirds'} career suffered seemingly irreparable damage. Despite strained relations with rooART, they forged on, with drummer Shane Melder} taking over for Temple}; after another LP, 1992's Va Va Voom} (released solely in Australia), the Hummingbirds} moved on to the tiny indie IV Recordings. After two final 1993 EPs, Gone} and Tail}, the group disbanded in December of that year; Holmes} later joined the band Fragile}. ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
