Event Info

Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh were two computer operators in Sheffield who both shared an intense passion for German electronica pioneers Kraftwerk. Armed with a few months' savings, Ware was able to buy a modest monophonic synth (a Korg 770S) that had just become available on the commercial market at an affordable price. Despite having never played a single note, Marsh and Craig set themselves the task of understanding the art of sound synthesis and it wasn't long before their combined enthusiasm began to exceed the limits of the cheap synth.

The Dead Daughters were formed for a gig at a friends 21st birthday party in 1977 and the Korg was put to the test by Ware with a rendition of the groundbreaking theme from the long running BBC sci-fi series Dr Who. Marsh and Craig together with Adi Newton had all enjoyed the experience of playing live and they decided to form a new band called The Future where they would concentrate purely on electronic music, something that was quite unheard of at the time in the UK. There had been some experimentation with synths during the 70's, but it was mostly the domain of prog rock groups like Sky. Ware was keen to distance himself from this style of music believing the melodic capabilities of the synth had not been properly exploited.
