Encyclopedia > Mission UK

The Mission (known as The Mission UK in the United States due to a naming clash with a Philadelphia R&B band) is a gothic rock band formed in 1986 from the splinters of the freshly-dissolved rock band The Sisters of Mercy. Gothic rock (also called goth rock or simply goth) evolved out of post-punk during the late 1970s. ... 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... The Sisters of Mercy are a band that emerged out of the British post punk scene in 1980-1981. ...


It was started by frontman Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams (both of the Sisters), soon adding Mick Brown (of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry) and Simon Hinkler (of Artery/Pulp). Aside from Hussey, the line-up has changed several times during the years, and the band has been dusted up from a state of dormancy once or twice. Wayne Hussey (born Jerry Lovelock on 26 May 1958 in Bristol) is a British musician, best known as a member of The Mission and The Sisters of Mercy. ... Brithsh musician, bass guitarist and songwriter of: The Sisters of Mercy (1981-1985) Mission UK (1985-1992, 1999-2002) The Cult (1993-1995) Colorsound (1998-) Alarm (2003-) Categories: Stub | The Sisters of Mercy ...

Detailed history

Incarnation

Initially touring as Sisterhood, the new band played songs originally written for the Sisters of Mercy. Some were already released, some vetoed by band leader Andrew Eldritch. "Dance on Glass" was essentially Sisters' "Black Planet", while "Garden of Delight", "Over the Hills and Far Away" (one of several original songs with an identical name, great grounds for confusion), "Bridges Burning", "Serpent's Kiss" and "And the Dance Goes On" were previously unreleased. Andrew Eldritch (born Andrew William Harvey Taylor, May 15, 1959) is the frontman, singer, songwriter and the only remaining original member of The Sisters of Mercy, a band that emerged from the British post punk scene and, in later years, also flirted with pop and hard rock. ...


Meanwhile, Eldritch was not too happy about their usage of Sisters of Mercy songs — or the Sisterhood name, not only because it was too similar a name, but also as it was what the band's fans were called. In order to stop the practice, he got together with friends and released an album and a single lifted off it, as The Sisterhood. An album is a collection of related audio tracks, released together commercially in an audio format to the public. ... In music, a single is a short (usually ten minutes or less*) record, usually featuring one or two tracks as A-side, often accompanied by several B-sides, usually remixes or other songs. ... The Sisterhood was a short-lived English goth band, consisting of Andrew Eldritch (writer and producer), drum machine Doktor Avalanche and the Chorus of Vengeance of Lucas Fox (drums), Patricia Morrison (bass and vocals), James Ray (guitar and vocals) and Alan Vega (synthesizer and vocals). ...


Now that there was a band named such with major releases under its belt, any court would have turned sour on Hussey's troupe. In need of a new band name, supposedly the combination of Mick's brand of speakers, a book relating to Hussey's Mormon upbringing and in a bite of an ankle, an originally-planned Sisters of Mercy album Left on a Mission and Revenge led them to decide on The Mission. Using the Eldritch-rejected material from their Sisters sessions, The Mission quickly released two indie singles on the Chapter 22 label, generating great interest from various record companies. Mormon is a colloquial term used to refer to members of most of the forms of Christianity within the Latter Day Saint movement, which began during the 1830s and in the United States. ...


Signing a seven-album deal with Phonogram, their debut album Gods Own Medicine was then recorded in six weeks with novice producer Tim Palmer — an acquaintance from Hussey's Dead or Alive days. The band then headed touring around Europe, culminating in a prestigious slot at the Reading Festival. As the American leg of their "World Crusade Tour" went into overdrive, the heavy schedule lead to the temporary departure of Adams. Phonogram Records was started in 1962 as a joint venture between Philips Records and Deutsche Grammophon. ...

A reflective mood followed Adams' return as Hussey found himself to be a father to a girl named Hannah. A live video entitled Crusade was released, capturing the band and their noisy audience at the early stage of their career. Turbulent recording sessions of the John Paul Jones-produced second album Children gave way to "Tower of Strength", the band's biggest hit yet. John Paul Jones John Baldwin (born January 3, 1946), better known by his stage name John Paul Jones was the bassist and keyboardist for Led Zeppelin until the bands breakup after the death of John Bonham in 1980. ...


The following world tour "Children Play" included South America, and the band was developing into Britain's #1 touring outfit, supported by a legion of devoted fans (dubbed eskimos or missionaries). The record company released a collection of music videos as From Dusk to Dawn, and to recapture the intimacy of the early gigs, the band travelled around Scotland to try out some new material, hitting the studio afterwards to carve out their next album, only to be briefly paused for the Hillsborough disaster benefit, spearheaded by Hussey, a lifelong Liverpool F.C. fan. Much material was recorded for Carved in Sand, and the band was never unanimous about what songs made the cut, so the album was quickly followed by Grains of Sand, containing the rest of the candidates.

To heal disagreements with humour, the foursome then promptly went camp to form a glam rock tribute band The Metal Gurus, playing support for The Wonder Stuff and recording a cover of Slade's "Merry Xmas Everybody" with Noddy Holder and Jim Lea from Slade. However, as the Deliverance World Tour rolled on it became clear that it had not been enough. Strains between the founding members resulted in Hinkler storming off the stage during a Toronto gig, never to return.

He was replaced by David Wolfenden for the remainder of the tour, while Tim Bricheno (of All About Eve) guests before joining the Sisters. With Paul Etchell (ex-Ghostdance) on keyboards and guitars, the last leg of the tour was finished and the sorrowful band retreated to lick their wounds, with Hussey moving to Herefordshire countryside, cherishing his newly-wed status and a brand-new driver's licence. Music promptly followed the man, however, as equipment was moved into an adjacent barn for some musical planning.

Brimming with new life in a few months, the recuperated bandsmen teamed up with engineer Joe Gibb to create a high-tech studio setup. Brown had been soaking up the Leeds dance scene, while Hussey's explorations were towards folk music. The band, asked to perform a lucrative headlining gig at Finsbury Park in 1991, brought out quite a different side, joined by Martin Allcock (ex-Fairport Convention) and Anthony Thistlethwaite (ex-The Waterboys). Many of old fanbase left the gig worried about the direction of the forthcoming release, and indeed 1992's Masque (produced by Mark Saunders) became a highly-contested release, seeing an evolution of Hussey's songwriting from the drama-and-nothing-but towards the personal, but its colourful, beat-driven pop instincts seriously alienated their traditional goth-rock following. Many have likened the record to a Hussey solo album, which evidently was the plan even though the end result wore The Mission's name. Without a tour planned, the new direction caused Craig Adams to depart towards The Cult. Reduced to a duo, the Mission began searching for new members — even placing an ad in the Melody Maker.

Childhood's end

The second incarnation of the Mission consisted of Brown, Hussey, Mark Gemini-Thwaite on guitar (ex Spear of Destiny, National Velvet), Rik Carter (ex Pendragon and Heartland) on keyboards and eventually Andy Cousin (ex 'Eve again) on bass, and the line-up's first release was a fanclub-only flexi disc cover of the Osmonds song "Crazy Horses" in early 1993. The recording of a new album started, while a BBC live album "No Snow No Show" for the Eskimo was compiled by Hussey and Joe Gibb. For the first time in three years, the band decided to tour, and a warm-up was arranged as the "Off the Street" Benefit for the homeless in Leeds. As Andrew Eldritch signed up, completely unfounded press speculation about a Hussey/Eldritch reunion became rife. The Club Mission tour romped through some smaller venues around Europe, with new tracks "Afterglow" and "Raising Cain" becoming a regular feature in the set.

The end of 1993 saw Hussey remixing "Tower of Strength" with Youth, and revisiting some of the past material for a greatest hits compilation. "Tower '93" charted in the following January, and the band made their last appearance on Top of the Pops. The compilation — Sum & Substance — was released in a month, bringing together most of the singles and two new tracks; "Sour Puss" (relating to Adams departing) and a ragged "Afterglow" remixed by Mark "Spike" Stent. The latter was also released as the final single through Vertigo/Phonogram — the seven-album contract was now up, and neither of the parties was interested in a continued relationship. A short U.K. tour (and some scattered summer dates) had the band keeping a low profile, and Hussey's second daughter Dylan-Rae was born. 1993 (MCMXCIII) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar and marked the Beginning of the International Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination (1993-2003). ...

Recordings proceeded slowly, while the band negotiated a new independent record deal, and Hussey produced a collection of three BBC sessions as Salad Daze. In late 1994, a single "Mission:1" containing an edgy "Raising Cain" had its release on the Equator Records label. And early in 1995, the single "Swoon" paved way for the next album, Neverland, more or less a Mission signature sound with a much heavier production. The Cure fans noticed the curious resemblance between "Pictures of You" and Mission's new "Heaven Knows". A following 'Neverland Tour' signals a slight revival of popularity as two concerts of the band were filmed for German television, a promo-only Live EP released and a handful of summer festivals played. Equator Records or Equator Sound Studios was originally known as East African Records, owned by Afcot Ltd, situated in Nairobi, Kenya. ... 1995 (MCMXCV in Roman) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

In early 1996, Hussey locked himself into an apartment in Bath with a six-track recorder and a couple of ideas. In March, the rest of the band set up in Bristol for a whirlwind punk-speed recording of eight weeks. When the end result — the slapdash Blue was released, its gritty low-fi feel touched a nerve with the critics, but left portions of the old fanbase rather unimpressed. Future interviews would see Hussey hating the album, with only the reworked B-side "Evermore & Again" ever becoming a regular staple in subsequent tours. A short stint around the UK, Belgium, Germany & the Netherlands afterwards turned out to be a farewell tour: After ten years, Hussey and Brown decided that enough is enough. The band finished it all off with festivals in Spain and South Africa, the latter being their final gig at the Kyalami racetrack in Johannesburg. 1996 (MCMXCVI) was a leap year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year for the Eradication of Poverty. ...

Afterlife

In 1999, after releasing revamped versions of Mission classics under the Cleopatra Records label, Hussey resurrected the band (with Craig Adams, Mark Thwaite and Scott Garrett (formerly of The Cult), for what was to be a one-off tour with Gene Loves Jezebel across the USA and an also-resurrected All About Eve across the United Kingdom. The success of the tour and the reaction of the crowds gave the band plenty of encouragement to continue beyond the tour, and 2000 saw the band take on a mammoth world tour, heading festivals in Europe and sharing the bill with the Sisters of Mercy at the M'era Luna Festival in Germany. A souvenir of the 1999 tour was released as Ever After, with the various live tracks complemented by 3 tracks from the 1995 promo-only Live EP and the even-rarer fanclub-only studio outtake "Crazy Horses". 1999 (MCMXCIX) was a common year starting on Friday, and was designated the International Year of Older Persons by the United Nations. ...

At the end of 2000, the band recorded some initial tracks in the Levellers Brighton's studios, while again thinking about a new album, and Dave Allen (who produced the first Sisters album) was drafted in to oversee the recording of tracks in Bath. Before the release of the album, dubbed Aura, the band was invited to play support for the German tour of the Finnish band HIM. At this juncture, Mark Gemini-Thwaite left the band (first due to previous touring commitments with Tricky and later to form the band New Disease) to be replaced by Rob Holliday of Sulpher.

Aura hit the stores, released on their own Playground label run by former Phonogram A&R man Charlie Eyre, garnering varying degrees of appreciation. The sound was heavy and the production very intricate, but fans noted that "Dragonfly" flew almost identically to the past hit "Butterfly on a Wheel", with many other songs having their analogies in Mission back-catalogue as well. Nonetheless, the band undertook a large world tour supporting the album. However, stresses of touring and diminishing returns once again saw tensions grow, and during a shambolic South American leg of their 2002 tour, Craig Adams decided to leave — later joining the Alarm. Hussey continued the leg of the tour by himself, with some acoustic shows backed by pre-recorded tapes, also lining himself up for a number of much more successful solo acoustic shows in Europe.


In early 2003, the Mission gained a new bass player in the form of Ritchie Vernon and after some months, losing Scott Garrett due to personal reasons, gained a new drummer in the form of Steve Spring. This new line-up had the band on firm ground, with a new fire in their bellies, resulting in some blistering shows across Europe, carrying on through to mid-2004.


Recency

September 2005 was when the band and the German SPV label released The Mission's first DVD, Lighting the Candles, complemented by a live CD. The single "Breathe Me In" hit the top of the Alternative Chart in Germany, and the band once again undertook an extensive EU tour. Mark Gemini-Thwaite is back on the line as Rob Holliday is occupied with the touring Prodigy. The band evolved the hard-rock angle further, while audience ranks grew throughout the tour. Hussey announced that 2006 would hold no tours, as he would concentrate on the new album and his personal projects.

Early 2006 sees Brazil-bound Hussey celebrating the 20th anniversary of the band, marked by the issue of a special T-shirt designed for the occasion. The old record company is inspired as well, delving into the vaults and coming out with a 2CD greatest hits / rarities set, titled The Mission: the Phonogram Years. Hussey provides copious liner notes, examining all those demos and alternative takes — even an unreleased outtake from the Carved in Sand sessions ("Diamond Cuts Diamond") sits together with live takes on "Amelia" and "Blood Brother". Universal also releases the Mission classic Crusade and the documentary Waves Upon the Sand on DVD. T-Shirt A T-shirt (or tee shirt) is a shirt with short or long sleeves, a round neck, put on over the head, without pockets. ...


Critical infamy

Hussey's explicitly-stated dreams of rockstardom did not escape attention. And especially in the earlier days, his lyrics presented a splashy, fragmented canvas of a million different idioms and imagery, woven together mostly for dramatic effect and occasionally, without a story at all to tell. It comes as no surprise that during their active years, the band was almost constantly under the gun of critics, who saw the band and its frontman in particular as the embodiment of "style over substance", deriding him all the way for spewing utter nonsense (an accusation joined in by former bandmate Eldritch on Floodland's "This Corrosion") over musical ideas allegedly lifted from "real" rock music grands (Led Zeppelin was an oft-quoted example and comparison). Floodland is the album released by The Sisters of Mercy in 1987, complete with heavy production, layers of synthesizer, choral singing, and the drum machine Doktor Avalanche. ... Led Zeppelin was a British rock band that became one of the most popular and influential musical ensembles ever. ...

Mission UK (130 words)
Mission UK (in the US) and the Mission (in the UK) is a Gothic rock band formed in 1986 by Wayne Hussey[?] and Craig Adams[?] (both of Sisters of Mercy), soon adding Mick Brown[?] (of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry[?]) and Simon Hinkler[?] (of Artery[?]).
They called themselves "the Mission", but had to change it to "Mission UK" for their American releases.
Their debut album was God's Own Medicine[?], a hit in the UK in spite of critical derision for perceived pomposity and excessive similarities to Yes and Led Zeppelin.
The Mission UK - Biography - AOL Music (365 words)
Derided by critics as pompous, melodramatic, and bombastic, the Mission, as they were known in their native U.K. (their name had to be changed in America owing to a Philadelphia R&B band with the same moniker), nonetheless attracted a core audience of goth rock fans.
The Mission was formed in 1986 by guitarist/singer Wayne Hussey and bassist Craig Adams, who both left the Sisters of Mercy to do so.
Meanwhile, several Mission members backed Slade members Noddy Holder and Jim Lea on the Christmas charity single "Merry Xmas Everybody." By 1992, Hussey was the only original member left; following the 1994 Sum and Substance retrospective, he recorded the 1995 album Neverland with a new Mission lineup.
