Eventually, a third brother joined the line-up, Al Barker (guitar), along with Del Crabtree on trumpet. The group have had numerous bassists: Charlie Luciano (original line-up), Crabtree, Dave Harris, Lenie Mets, Anthony Coote and Terry De Castro. Animals That Swim released their first single, "King Beer", in 1992 on their own Beachheads In Space label, but came to wider attention with their next two singles, "Roy" (which took the form of an imaginary conversation with the ghost of Roy Orbison) and the 50 Dresses EP. The group won critical acclaim for their mixture of "slice of life" lyrics and magic realism, and their distinctive use of the trumpet as a lead instrument. The group have released three studio albums - Workshy (1994), I Was The King, I Really Was The King (1996) and Happiness From A Distant Star (2001) - plus a compilation album, Faded Glamour - The Best of Animals That Swim (2004).

Following a lengthy hiatus since 2001, the group are currently writing material for an acoustic EP, set for release in 2010. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
