About

About Teardrop Explodes

Teardrop Explodes

TEARDROP EXPLODES. English post-punk band formed in Liverpool in 1978 best known for their 1981 UK No6 single "Reward". The group originated as a key band in the emerging Liverpool post-punk scene of the late 1970s and launched the career of group frontman Julian Cope as well as that of keyboard player and co-manager David Balfe who later became a record producer / A&R man and founder of Food Records. Other members included early Smiths producer Troy Tate. Along with other contemporary Liverpudlian groups, The Teardrop Explodes played a role in returning psychedelic elements to mainstream British rock and pop. In addition to their musical reputation, the band (and Cope in particular) had a reputation for eccentric pronouncements and behaviour, sometimes verging on the self-destructive.
