The June Brides are an English indie pop group, formed in London in 1983, by Phil Wilson and Simon Beesley of International Rescue. Influenced by Postcard-label bands such as Josef K and punk-era bands such as Buzzcocks, The Desperate Bicycles and The Television Personalities, their mix of guitar pop with viola and trumpet formed a blueprint for many of the indie pop bands that would follow.
After forming in June 1983, they attracted the attention of future Creation Records boss Alan McGee, who gave them several gigs at the now famous 'Living Room', released the mini-album 'There Are Eight Million Stories' (produced by John O'Neill of That Petrol Emotion), and went straight to number one in the UK Indie Chart, staying there for a month. The album remained in the indie chart for 38 weeks.
In 1986 they opened for The Smiths on their Irish tour dates, then were asked to contribute to the NME's C86 compilation but declined for fear of being pigeonholed.
The band were also honoured in 2006 by a tribute album 'Still Unravished', which featured covers by bands such as Manic Street Preachers, Television Personalities, The Tyde, Jeffrey Lewis and The Jasmine Minks. Dave Eggers and Everett True contributed liner notes for the album.
On 23 January 2009, Phil Wilson, Simon Beesley, Jon Hunter and Frank Sweeney reformed The June Brides for a one off show at The Others, Stoke Newington in London. In June 2012, the band reformed and released its first new single in 23 years via Slumberland Records.
