Heavenly / Bis
Trophy Girlfriend (IPU066)
Vol. LXVI in our International Pop Underground series of 7" 45 rpm phonograph records is a split single featuring these Crashpop powerhouses.
Heavenly formed in Oxford, England early 1990 out of the ashes of Talulah Gosh. Consisting of Amelia Fletcher, voice and guitar, Peter Momtchiloff, guitar, Matthew Fletcher, drums, Rob Pursey, bass, and Cathy Rogers, voice, keyboards, Heavenly released four albums and several singles and EPs. In 1998, the majority of the members of Heavenly recombined as Marine Research. Amelia and Rob later formed Tender Trap.
Bis are a Glasgow, Scotland trio who peppered the world with a handful of 45s and an album before spontaneously bursting at the seams from their own youthful enthusiasm.
