The Adventures

Profile:
Pop - rock band
Formed from members of the Belfast, Northern Ireland punk pop band Starjets and Tango Brigade in the early 80's, lead singer Terry Sharpe and guitarist Pat Gribben. They were joined by Pat Gribben's wife Eileen Gribben on vocals, drummer Paul Crowder, bassist Tony Ayre and vocalist Spud Murphy (2). They were signed at Chrysalis and released their debut in 1984. Managed by Simon Fuller (2), they were the support band of Tears For Fears world tour in 1985. After one album at Chrysalis, they were signed by Elektra in 1987 where they scored their biggest hit "Broken Land", a No.20 hit in the U.K. charts and the most played song on BBC Radio 1 in 1988. They released two albums at Elektra and for their fourth and last album they were signed at Polydor that included their reworking of Mamas & The Papas, 1966 classic "Monday Monday". Due to lack of success Polydor dropped them and soon after they disbanded. They regrouped briefly in 2007 and again in 2009 for some gigs in Belfast.

Spud Murphy (2) was primarily a guitarist for the band, not a vocalist as stated above. (I'm on the CIP, thus not allowed to correct all incorrect data I find...)
