Oh, you probably heard their one hit wonder song. But there is a lot more to this band than one song. More indie 80's band for your Saturday!
The La's are an English alternative rock band from Liverpool, consisting of frontman Lee Mavers (vocals, guitars) and John Power (bass guitar, backing vocals), plus a revolving cast of guitarists and drummers. The band is best known for the song "There She Goes".
La's formed in 1983, and had effectively broken up by 1992 after recording one album, The La's (1990) when bassist John Power left the band to form Cast. A new line-up with Cammy on bass played a handful of shambolic gigs in '94 and '95; Mavers and Power reunited in 2005 for another handful of gigs before seemling splitting up again.-AMAZON
