The Groove Farm

Bristol-based indie popsters the Groove Farm emerged as part of the C-86 movement, serving up shambling guitar with ‘60s undertones. The band formed in 1986, comprised of singer/guitarist Andrew Jarrett, guitarist Jon Kent, bassist Rupert Taylor, and drummer Jez Butler. Founding their own label, Raving Pop Blast!, the Groove Farm released a handful of 7"s and 12" EPs as well as the full-length Plug (The Story of Pop So Far) between 1987 and 1990. Also signed with the Subway Organisation label, the quartet released the Alvin Is King! LP along with a variety of vinyl releases, but creative differences and financial strains led them back on the D.I.Y. track. Gaining fans like Clare Wadd (who would later co-found Sarah Records) and radio personality John Peel, the Groove Farm were covered extensively in the British fanzine press, with their song "Baby Blue Marine" issued as a flexi-disc for Kvatch. Following the breakup of the band, Jarrett formed Beatnik Filmstars -- joined in the early years of the band by Kent and Butler -- while Taylor went on to perform with Girlboy Girl. In 2000, Mobstar offered the Groove Farm anthology The Best Parts, Vol. 1 and live CD Totally Total, culminating in the foursome reuniting in a one-off show for the label’s Pop Frenzy Weekend. Ten years later, remastered greatest-hits and rarities collection I Know It’s Only Indiepop...But I Like It arrived on Big Pink Cake. ~ Chrysta Cherrie
