    THE VERY THINGS Biography

    Biography : 1982 saw the implosion of the brilliant but unstable dwarf star, jazz/punk fusion ‘The Cravats’. Staggering away from the debris, the two founding fathers Robin Raymond Dallaway and The Shend took refuge and fed themselves on a late night diet of episodes of ‘The Twilight Zone’ and ‘Outer Limits’, Tamia Motown singles, hyper bad 50’s sci-fi films and psychedelic grooves from the 60’s. They went back into the studio in 1983 and built The Very Things. They were a band loved by many people, including John Peel, who soon gave them their first of five sessions. Their critical and record buying popular acclaim led to a film made for and in conjunction with The Tube, a black and white pastiche of low budget B films based around two of their tracks. Ken Russell declared the piece “wonderfully gothic”, adding that it made him “want to destroy my greatest work.”
    During their five year life-span. The Very Things showed an almost complete disregard for career structures, which meant that they did not get around to releasing their ‘missing’ second album – until Fire got their hands on it almost 10 years later, and put it out along with reissues of the other two albums. The full title of the ‘missing’ album is, no less… ‘It’s A Drug, It’s A Drug, It’s A Ha Ha Ha, It’s A Trojan Horse Coming Out Of The Wall.’
