Marine Research formed in late 1997 as a continuation of Heavenly -- who disbanded the prior year following the tragic suicide of drummer Mathew Fletcher. With the remaining four-fifths of Heavenly moving on with drummer John Stanley (aka DJ Downfall), Amelia Fletcher (vocals), Cathy Rogers (vocals/keyboards), Rob Pursey (bass), and Peter Momtchiloff (guitar) continued with their formula of uppity twee-pop and punk rock undertones that root back from their Talulah Gosh days. Immediately releasing their debut single Queen B in 1998 and a split EP with Built to Spill, K Records eventually signed the Oxford/London based quintet that resulted in the CD EP Parallel Horizontal and the full-length sounds from the gulf stream later on that same year. The band disbanded in 1999. Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
