Warm In and Out...

The Lotus Eaters were an odd new wave act because they had folksier elements than the genre had previously encompassed. They had lovely synths with a jangly guitar which would have made Johnny Marr practice longer hours... Here's a sample... "The First Picture of You"

Peter Coyle - Vocals (1982-1985,2000-) (before The Lotus Eaters played in No Trace (1980-1981),Jass Babies (1981-1982),Tin Ethics (1981), Living Legends (1982) )
