Encyclopedia > Skeletal Family

Out the ashes of The Elements (1980-1982) came the Gothic rock group "Skeletal Family" in December 1982. Skeletal Family is one of only two groups that sprang up from Keighley, West Yorkshire in the early 1980s. The other group being New Model Army. The original lineup was Anne-Marie Hurst (vocals), Stan Greenwood (guitar), Roger 'Trotwood' Nowell (bass), Ian "Karl Heinz" Taylor (keyboard/sax), and Steve Crane (drums). In 1984, the band signed on to indie label Red Rhino and recorded their first single for Red Rhino, "The Night," just after losing their original drummer Steve Crane. Crane was replaced by Howard Daniels. Daniels was soon replaced by Martin Henderson (formerly of The Last Laugh). Skeletal Family's first album "Burning Oil" was released by Red Rhino in the autumn of 1984. The band began touring with the likes of The Sisters Of Mercy during the Sisters' First and Last and Always tour. The group released "Futile Combat" in 1985 along with the "Promised Land" single. The group then signed with Chrysalis Records and Anne-Marie Hurst along with Martin Henderson left the band to develop new projects. Anne-Marie Hurst would eventually team up with Gary Marx in Ghostdance. Martin Henderson teamed up with ex-March Violets vocalist Simon D to create The Batfish Boys. Vocalist Katrina Phillips replaced Anne-Marie Hurst and Kevin Hunter replaced Martin Henderson. The remaining members of the group soon disbanded after being inexplicably dropped from the Chrysalis label. In 2002, Skeletal Family reformed.
