Biografia

Doctor and the Medics are a London based psychedelic rock band, famous in the 1980s. They are best known for their UK number one hit “Spirit in the Sky”. The band currently perform, with a different line-up, as a tribute act to various artists.
Career

The Doctor (Clive Jackson , 7 July 1961, Knotty Ash, Liverpool), a former London-based DJ, formed the group with guitarist Steve McGuire, drummer Vom (aka Steve Ritchie, not to be confused with Crazyhead drummer Rob “Vom” Morris), and bassist Gareth Thomas and female dancers and singers The Anadin Brothers in 1981. [1] The group adopted a look inspired by both 1960s psychedelia and kabuki make-up similar to that of Kiss.

Their first single was “The Druids are Here” which was released on Whaam Records in 1982.[2]

They released no further records until 1985, although a four track EP recorded live at Alice In Wonderland, a Soho nightclub where The Doctor was house DJ, was available direct from the band.

The band’s unique female backing singers were known collectively as The Anadin Brothers.[2] Originally there were 3 Anadin Brothers but this was soon whittled down to Wendi West and Colette Appleby. Their unique performances were extremely well synchronised and featured highly characteristic moves, these were influenced by the fact that the duo had previously competed together as synchronised swimmers.

In 1985 they signed to IRS Records and released “Happy but Twisted” a five track 12” EP including a cover of Hawkwind’s “Silver Machine”. This reached number 2 on the indie charts.[3] This was followed by “The Miracle of the Age”, produced by Andy Partridge of XTC.
