SEEING STARS

In late 1992, the band All About Eve released , but it was not a commercial success and their label dropped them. In January 1993, while contemplating their next project, Julianne Regan left the group and All About Eve split up. The remaining members (Andy Cousin, Mark Price and Marty Willson-Piper) had a few weeks available so went ahead and recorded what became Seeing Stars (originally under the name ). This resulted in what Marty described as an unpressured, very spontaneous record, with lyrics that were often improvised during recording.
