Biografia

The Snake Corps were a music group based in London, England during the 1980s and 1990s.

Formed in 1984, from the ashes of the (then) broken-up Sad Lovers & Giants, Tristan Garel-Funk and Nigel Pollard conceived the band, but Pollard left prior to recording the first album. Vocalist Marc Lewis responded to an advert in Melody Maker and shared a flat with Garel-Funk, the pair becoming the band’s two ever-present members.

The music was too relaxed and understated to appeal to a mass-market. Not unlike Sad Lovers & Giants before them, they focused on creating dreamy, filmic soundscapes and at least partly, discarded the post-punk influences that shackled many of their contemporaries. Consequently, the band found that the European market was more aligned to their musical style and they toured abroad extensively, receiving good support wherever they went.

Distancing themselves from Britain and shunning even a regular UK tour meant that the regular indie labels were largely uninterested. However, Midnight Music, who had been the home of early SL&G, signed the band and were able to give them the artistic freedom they craved. Unfortunately, this laissez-faire approach extended to most of the company’s dealings and ultimately hastened their demise. In the wake of a messy collapse, the band found that they were not only label-less, but their publishing rights had transferred to another company without any involvement or agreement from the band members. Not surprisingly, they decided to call it a day.

    В чём секрет британского пост-панка? Просто удивительно. Сначала слушаешь — ничего особенного. Но чем больше слушаешь, тем больше влюбляешься в эту музыку и не можешь оторваться, просто магия. Удивительно. Отличная группа. Первый альбом прекрасен, трек "Flesh On Flesh" стал гимном моей жизни. Спасибо.

    Very good band. In Flux, Science That Kills and Victory Parade are examples of those few songs that always play randomly on my mind, even unconsciously I may say.

    ah well I finally got the lyrics. Straight from Marc Lewis e-mail )) sharing it with you. Fireflies "Who left your feelings in the cold and let them die Hide a saving grace in a secret place Now all the reasons in the world wont tell you why Mountains turn the sand when we’re holding hands Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder When will the darkness fade away so you can shine? Find a helping hand take it while you can Don’t search for truth again your heart will never lie Pleasure after pain in sweet love again Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder So much older So much harder to fan the flames And the fireflies Break Fireflies within your eyes Make the world seem colder So much older So much harder to fan the flames And the fireflies And the fireflies ah ah etc"

    Guys, help me please to find lyrics for "Fireflies" from album "3rd Cup". A very nice song I really want to make cover of, but unfortunately the band is not well-known.
