Originally called the Swarm, All About Eve emerged on the late 80s UK gothic scene. The bands nucleus of erstwhile rock journalist and Gene Loves Jezebel bass player Julianne Regan (Coventry, England; vocals), along with Tim Bricheno (b. 6 July 1963, Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England; guitar, ex-Aemotti Crii), provided much of their song material. After various early personnel changes, the rhythm section was stabilized with Andy Cousin (bass; also ex-Aemotti Crii) and Mark Price (drums). Given encouragement by rising stars the Mission (for whom Regan had in the past sung backing vocals), All About Eve developed a solid following and with a backdrop of hippie mysticism and imagery, along with Regans predilection for white-witchcraft and Tarot cards, provided a taste of the exotic with a mixture of goth rock and 70s folk.
