American band Tangerine who were the brainchild of former Crash mainman Mark Dumais. Crash had been formed in New York before the band had moved to London in 1986, releasing three singles and an album, and amongst its members were guitarist Kurt Ralske, who would go on to become Ultra Vivid Scene and release three albums for 4AD; drummer Byron Guthrie, who also later joined Ralske in UVS; and Bill Carey, who went on to form fellow Creation band Something Pretty Beautiful. Joining Dumais on vocals in Tangerine was Julie Davids and the two singers were backed by heavy dance keyboards and beats.
