The Godfathers

The Godfathers were founded by brothers Peter and Chris Coyne in London in 1985. Vocalist Peter and bassist Chris were joined by guitarists Kris Dollimore and Mike Gibson and drummer George Mazur. Coming ten years after Britain's punk explosion, they nevertheless built on that music's rage and force. Their debut album, Hit by Hit, was released in the U.S. on the indie label Link in 1986 and followed by Birth, School, Work, Death on Epic in 1988, which made the Top 100 bestsellers as the title song was played on album rock radio. Their third album, More Songs About Love & Hate (1989), featured the popular college radio track "She Gives Me Love," but was less commercially successful. They released a fourth album, Unreal World, on Epic in 1991. ~ William Ruhlmann

They had me right from the moment I heard the start of the Birth, School, Work, Death video on MTV. Easily one of the best British bands of the '80s.

...the Paradise Rock Club in Boston. Yea, they were loud, but other than Midnight Oil, these boys were the best rock club act I saw in the (H)eighties. Good times.

Saw them at the Roxy, ran into an old girlfriend I really wanted to forget about. Band was loud and strong. They did one of the best versions of Anarchy in the UK and Fight for Your Right to Party. I don't remember much after the band played.
