Not to be confused with the avant-prog group of the same name, Edinburgh's Happy Family was one of the 4AD label's early acts.
They originally consisted of Nick Currie, David Weddell (ex-Josef K), Paul Mason, and future Win member Ian Stoddart. Debuting with the Puritans single in March of 1982, Stoddart eventually parted, with Ronnie Torrance (another Josef K alum) and Neil Martin joining. The full-length Man on Your Street appeared on the shelves later in the year, with the band calling it quits shortly after. Currie would move to London a couple years later, attaining much more notoriety as Momus. A cassette of Happy Family demo versions appeared on Les Temps Modernes in 1985. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
