Passion Puppets


Passion Puppets were a British new wave band that caught radio listeners with one clever single, "Like Dust," before abruptly vanishing. Seemingly an ode to Italian Western films, "Like Dust," a cult hit on Canadian radio in the '80s, is more often remembered than the group that actually performed it. Formed in 1983 in Camden, England, Passion Puppets featured Ray Burmiston (vocals), Miki Screene (bass, vocals), Andy P. (guitars), Dave Rollins (guitars), and Simon Langford Godfrey (drums).

Passion Puppets were a British new wave band that caught radio listeners with one clever single, "Like Dust," before abruptly vanishing. Seemingly an ode to Italian Western films, "Like Dust," a cult hit on Canadian radio in the '80s, is more often remembered than the group that actually performed it. Formed in 1983 in Camden, England, Passion Puppets featured Ray Burmiston (vocals), Miki Screene (bass, vocals), Andy P. (guitars), Dave Rollins (guitars), and Simon Langford Godfrey (drums).

Passion Puppets released three singles, "Like Dust," "Voices," and "Beyond the Pale," on Stiff Records in the U.K. between 1983 to 1984. In 1984, the band released its only album, Beyond the Pale, distributed in the U.S. by MCA Records.

The LP didn't sell well and the group split up soon thereafter. Burmiston embarked on a career as a photographer, snapping pictures of pop stars for record companies and British teen magazines. In 1994, an extended version of "Like Dust" appeared on Hardest Hits, Vol. 1, introducing the out-of-print record to a new generation of fans; it was the first time the band had ever been heard on CD.

In 2000, Burmiston recorded an album called Miniworld under the name Kicking the Moon. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
