The band revolved around singer, songwriter and guitarist Martin Coogan (older brother of actor/comedian Steve), who blended his love of 70s glam and art rock (David Bowie, Be Bop Deluxe) with a nod towards the best in 60s music to create The Mock Turtles' sound. . From 1987 to 1990, the band made five singles (the 'Pomona' EP, 'Wicker Man', 'And Then She Smiles', 'Lay Me Down' and 'Magic Boomerang') and an album, Turtle Soup, for Manchester's Imaginary Records, as well as a compilation 87-90.
