Altered Images

Profile:
Post-punk group formed in Glasgow, 1979.
Originally comprising Clare Grogan (vocals), Tony McDaid (guitar), John McElhone (bass), Gerard "Caesar" McInulty (guitar) and Michael "Tich" Anderson (drums).
McInulty left in 1981 to form The Wake with Jim McKinven (guitar/keyboards) replacing him.
They soon adopted synthpop stylings under the influence of producers including Martin Rushent and Mike Chapman.
The group split in 1983 (Anderson and McKinven had already left the previous year).
Clare (who had already appeared in the hit film "Gregory's Girl" in 1980) was also an actress appearing under the name CP Grogan.
The band continues to perform and record with a mainly female line-up.

Own all of their first 3 albums. I was introduced to the band by John Peel back in the 80's. Claire Grogan's voice was certainly unique, but the groups music and lyrics were fantastic. I just wish they had don more. Word on the street is that a new material is coming out in 2022 - hope its true!
