Wild Swans PhotoTeardrop Explodes organist Paul Simpson formed his own band, Wild Swans, in 1982, trying his hand at vocals in front of such bandmates as Jerry Kelly (ex-Systems guitarist), Ged Quinn (keyboards), and Alan Mills (drums). The Wild Swans' single "Revolutionary Spirit," also the last single recorded on the Liverpool indie label Zoo, slowly gained a cult audience, in spite of the fact that the band had broken up soon after forming. The single's eventual success and the warm reception given a Peel Sessions EP in 1986 convinced the Wild Swans to re-form, and they released the LP Bringing Home the Ashes in 1988. This was followed with the more psychedelic Space Flower in 1990, after which the band called it quits a second time. ~ Steve Huey, All Movie Guide
