Brideshead's basic structure of '80s-influenced guitar pop was originated in 1993 under the moniker of Starfish.
Debuting with the EP This Is Mall Music! two years later on Apricot Records, Brideshead were in the midst of a revolving roster that would haunt them until 1997. Eventually settling on Martin Nelte (vocals), Zwen Keller (guitar), Hanns-Christian Mahler (guitar), Paul Engling (bass), and Daniel Kubsch (drums), the Frankfurt natives finally had the chance to record their first full-length on Marsh-Marigold entitled Some People Have All the Fun. Released in 1998, the album bore influences of classic indie pop in the mold of bands like Orange Juice and the Pale Fountains. A second LP, In and Out Love, followed in 2002 and comprised songs from several of their earlier EPs and singles along with a number of new tracks. Brideshead were largely inactive for the remainder of the decade, reappearing in 2010 on Shelflife Records with the five-song Comeback EP. They finally delivered their third full-length, Never Grow Up, in 2015. ~ Mike DaRonco & Timothy Monger, Rovi
