They don’t need someone new...

The Lotus Eaters is an English group formed in 1982 in Liverpool by Jeremy Kelly and Peter Coyle.

Originally, Kelly was part of the group "Wild Swans" and Coyle of "Jass Babies".

Little is known about the life of the group by itself during the period when it is active.

Their first single "The first picture of you" was released in 1983.

The last “It hurts” will be released in 1985.

No title will truster the summit of the Charts but the quality of their music is undeniable.

And their sound footprint slightly different from all that could be done at that time, while being very interesting, hence the interest of devoting an article to them and putting them back in the spotlight.

To discover or rediscover.

1983 ... the confirmation of an obvious talent. Talent that highlights a light and airy style that has everything to please ...

1984 ... in the same vein. A style frankly apart from the rest of the pack and which unfortunately will have marginalized them more than anything else. Go figure ...

1984 ... surely one of their most beautiful titles. An astonishing inspiration carried by an extraordinary sound. HU-GE !

1984 ... and what about that one ! A WONDER of sweetness and finesse ! A group gone somewhat unnoticed and which would have really deserved recognition much higher than it was ...

1985 ... a last for the road. Another title with certain quality. In the end, very little waste from this excellent group !
