Despite more favorable reviews, Stones failed to make much of an impact on either side of the Atlantic and Addict has been quiet since its issue... **Taken from Mark Aston's website** After signing to V2 Records in 1997 Addict released their first album "STONES" in 1998. The band spent the next two years touring the record, predominantly in the states, until they landed in New Orleans to record their second album. The second record was to be a departure from the rock album that was "stones" as Mark Aston in particular wanted to move on musically and make a record that was more refined and mature than the first. "COME ON SUN" was the result of six weeks in the studio with producer Malcomn Burns with contributions from the likes of Emmy Lou Harris, N'dea Davenport and the best brass section in New Orleans. It was a dramatic departure from the first record so much so that V2 decided that to release the record would be like starting from scratch again so the band were dropped and the record never released. Zanderman was formed from the ashes of Addict but little was achieved due in part to differences of opinions as to how the band should grow musically.
An acoustic album "Live at the Kashmir" was released on the bands own label but in June 2001 Zanderman split. After 8 years working together the end of the band was a blow to all involved. You'll now find drummer Luke Bullen playing as part of his fiance's (KT Tunstall) band. Read more on Last.fm.
