History Edit

The Legendary Gazelles were formed during 1985 for a one off gig at the Turgid Lemming talent contest. Failure at that prestigous event did not put them off and they started gigging the Norwich circuit. The music was described by one member of the band as Power Pop, the rest fell about laughing but could not think of anything better. For about four years they played various gigs around Norwich, including The Jacquard, the Weh Aye Cocker Club at Norwich Arts Centre, The Kings Head, The Bill Wilson room, and The GSA. During this time the band coffers swelled enough for three recording sessions, and a video.

The band never gigged outside of their native Norwich, but had many good reviews in the local press (and one bad one from Baz McHat of The Wilde Club). Possibly the highlight of their career was a few mentions by the late John Peel on his radio Norfolk show. The band split in 1989 due to geographical differences.
