Collector Number One - Drugstore

Collector Number One
Led by Brazilian Isabel Montiero who relocated to England in 1990, Drugstore are a London-based outfit excelling in alternative, late-night, wine drenched, smoky but occasionally spiteful indie pop. The band was formed in 1993 by Monteiro, Dave Hunter (guitar) and Mike Chylinski (drums). Just before the release of their highly acclaimed first single "Alive" in 1994, on their own label (honey), Hunter was replaced by guitarist Daron Robinson. With their charismatic vocalist proffering highly unusual lyrical matter with an intimate delivery akin to Velvet Underground and Mazzy Star there was delicious menace behind this seductive sound (sample lyric from Drugstore - "I've still got the knife that I used to get rid of that guy" - from "Nectarine"). A number of singles earned them Single Of The Week awards, as Drugstore's rise continued. A duet with Thom Yorke of Radiohead on the excellent single "El President" put the band firmly back in the spotlight. While not all of White Magic For Lovers was able to match the commercial success set by the single, tracks such as "Say Hello" and "Mondo Cáne" proved the band were capable of equally inspired moments.
