Salad was a somewhat underrated U.K.-based pop group that included vocalist/keyboardist Marijne Van Der Vlugt, bassist Pete Brown, drummer Rob Wakeman, and guitarist Paul Kennedy.
Thanks to Van Der Vlugt's amiable, joyous stage presence (along with her notoriety as a video jockey for MTV Europe), Salad gained a reputation as an energetic pop group comparable to other bouncy outfits like Sleeper and Elastica. They formed in 1992 and released three full-lengths -- 1995's Drink Me, the same year's Singles Bar, and 1997's Icecream -- before breaking up in the late '90s. Despite being part of the Brit-pop scene in terms of sound, they never quite received the same amount of attention given to their peers. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
