Spearmint is a London-based indie pop band, founded in 1995 from the ashes of a project called 'Laverne and Shirlie'. Their sound can be said to be classic British guitar pop, with some Northern Soul influences.
The founding members were Shirley Lee (lead vocals, guitar), Simon Calnan (vocals, keyboards), Martin Talbot (bass) and Ronan Larvor (drums). Talbot left soon afterward, to be replaced by James Parsons. Richard 'Dickon' Edwards later ended up joining as second guitarist, though leaving in 2000 to form Fosca. Read more on Last.fm
