Remember Fun where formed in 1986 when a group of friends came togther to make music. The original line up was a 5 piece with Andrew Smith (vocals), John Eslick (guitars), Steven Dunbar (bass), Raymond McDonald (guitars) and Mark Kane (drums). A few members came and went from then on, around the nucleus of Andrew, Raymond and John. The Remember Fun debut single looked set at various times, at one point a Australian single was on the cards.

It is remarkable that this took until the Spring of 2001 to see the light of day with the post-humus CD EP on Matinee Records!

Remember Fun had a fine line in scathing social and political lyrics wrapped in deceptively sweet tunes, and they were one of many groups who drew inspiration from the Postcard scene of the early '80s. Like seeing their peers The Visitors at last gain recognition (through their Miss collection also released by Matinée), it's rewarding, if somewhat odd, to have a 'new' CD with the name Remember Fun on the sleeve, and if I have to say that I still prefer the older demo version of 'Train Song' to the released one, well that's perhaps just me being elitist.

Or perhaps isn't... Now all we need is for someone to release those Church Grims demos on CD. --Tangents (from www.eggrecords.co.uk) Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
