In the late 1990's there was a small British band called theaudience...and yes, no space and no caps. I don't even remember what made me interested in this band. I think I read about them somewhere and then I was at a Best Buy and saw an EP of theirs and was so impressed that they had it because it was somewhat obscure that I had to get it despite having not heard a lick of their stuff.
I was pleased with my purchase though. As far as I know, the "I've Got the Wherewithal" EP I found is the only one that was ever released in the U.S. It had five songs, basically no liner notes, and I really never knew anything about the band. That is, until later. I was watching television once and they mentioned some dance song climbing the charts and showed the girl who sang it and I thought "she looks very familiar" and then I thought "that's the girl from theaudience!' as she is on the cover of said EP I had bought years before. So theaudience is fronted by one Sophie Ellis-Baxter who has since then had some chart hits and I've known people who've liked her music.
Yesterday I attended a local performance of Grease and came home with the songs in my head. I have the soundtrack from the movie, but I am not near my CDs at the moment so I was out of luck. Then I remembered that on that theaudience EP there was a nice rendition of "There Are Worse Things I Could Do" and listened to that, thus...I decided to share theaudience with you folks.
Here is the Grease cover as well as my favorite track from the EP:
