"I love garlic, actually. It's included in a lot of foods that I eat."
Alison Shaw (Cranes)
Based around the brother and sister team of Jim and Alison Shaw, Cranes are able to successfully make dark, often haunting music that is also very catchy. Their earliest work was the cassette-only FUSE (1986), but it was the 1989 mini-LP "SELF-NON-SELF" that really started getting the attention of Britain's music press and radio. Signing with Dedicated/BMG, they went on to make many more great albums and, among other things, opened for The Cure on a 100 date tour of America and Europe.
