Made up of vocalist Sarah Cracknell, Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley, Saint Etienne (named after the green shirted French football side who enjoyed a run of European success in the 1970's) originally formed in 1990. Their 1991 debut Foxbase Alpha established them as a quintessentially English proposition – part Lyons Corner House, part acid house – and their love of techno, the Beach Boys and classic English pop marked them out as something charmingly unique. Given their love of pop it's no surprise they would later work with Xenomania's Brian Higgins on their 2005 release Tales From Turnpike House (an album also featuring vocal contributions from '70s pop star David Essex). A concept album where the songs portray a day in the life of characters who all live in the same block of flats, Tales From Turnpike House offers varied musical textures combined with wonderful songwriting.
