Immaculate Fools were formed in 1984 in Kent. The original line-up consisted of two sets of brothers: Kevin & Paul Weatherill, as well as Andy & Peter Ross. Their distinctive indie-pop sound soon landed them a deal with A&M Records, who issued their debut album “Hearts Of Fortune” in 1985.

Over the course of 11 years, the band released six critically acclaimed albums and found success across the world with songs such as ‘Immaculate Fools’, ‘Tragic Comedy’, ‘Wish You Were Here’, ‘The Prince’ and ‘Stand Down’.

Now for the first time, their ‘80s and ’90s albums are brought together and expanded with additional material, in a new box set from Cherry Red.

Includes the albums “HEARTS OF FORTUNE”, “DUMB POET”, “ANOTHER MAN’S WORLD”, “THE TOY SHOP”, “WOODHOUSE” and “KISS AND PUNCH”
