Rose of Avalanche

This Leeds-based goth-tinged band revolved around Phil Morris (vocals) and Paul James Berry (guitar), with the remainder of the line-up prone to frequent change.

After disputes with the independent label, Fire (who released their early singles and their 1988 LP, Blaze ) the group established their own label, called Avalantic.

The single, LA Rain, was a John Peel favourite. Clocking in at over 7 minutes, it was one of the finest indie releases of the time.

They released seven albums before splitting up in 1993.

Berry was involved in a car accident in 2009 and spent a number of years in a wheelchair.
