Sad Lovers And Giants

British post-punk group Sad Lovers And Giants, based in Watford, Hertfordshire, featured a line-up comprising Garce Allard (vocals), Tristan Garel-Funk (guitar), David Woods (keyboards), Cliff Silver (bass) and Nigel Pollard (drums). After the exposure of early singles 'Colourless Dream' and 'Lost In A Moment', it was the release of 'Man Of Straw' and the accompanying Feeding The Flame that really established the group as masters of the double-edged lyric and sweeping, emotional textures of guitar and keyboard: 'Like confession whispered slowly, Hate's a word that's spoken softly, Standing lonely trusting no one, In disarray with collar undone'.



Guitarist Garel-Funk and drummer Pollard left soon after to form The Snake Corps, and the band had already fallen apart by the time the Total Sound mini-album, recorded live for broadcast on Dutch radio in 1983, was released. Another posthumous release, In The Breeze, comprising demos, live tracks and alternative versions recorded for BBC disc jockey John Peel, predated its release. The group was reactivated in 1987, releasing 'White Russians', while only Pollard and Allard were still in place for the subsequent final albums. The group finished with the collapse of Midnight Music in 1991. Members of Sad Lovers and Giants went on to form The Snake Corps - also on Midnight Music.

They broke up initially after their second album, with guitarist Tristan Garel-Funk forming the equally criminally ignored Snake Corps. Singer Garce Allard then recruited a new guitarist and recorded 3 more superb, but again, completely ignored albums.

What an amazing band. Hire they couldn't get signed to a larger record label I'll never understand. A very facile description of their sound would basically be a combination the smiths and the chameleons but that isn't particularly accurate

I wish they have more of their albums

I like it, but they sound like the Smiths.

Lead singer sounds like Morrissey, but I bet it is not.

I agree. Especially Feeding the Flame, their magnum opus IMHO. A brooding, poetic, post-punk masterpiece!

So glad SLAG has finally been added.. One of the best hidden gems from the 80's through the early part of the 90's. Hopefully Pandora will add tracks from Headland, Treehouse Poetry, and Feeding the Flame.
