The Bolshoi were a London -based music group prominent mostly in the mid to late s. The band formed in in TrowbridgeWiltshire.
Inthe band released their debut single, "Sob Story", followed by the mini-album, Giants and their hit song "Happy Boy". Word of mouth was such that the Bolshoi were able to sell out many of their early headlining performances. The band moved to London inand their lineup expanded to include Paul Clark on keyboards. Inthey released their first full-length album, Friendsand expanded their touring schedule to the U.
It was followed in by the album Lindy's Partyon which the sound was more pop-oriented. TC Wall, reviewing the album in Underground magazine, described Lindy's Party as "completely confident, commercial, professional, and dangerously catchy" and "a fine album that'll be caressed for generations". Stylistically, The Bolshoi was difficult to categorize. It has been described as a Sob Story - The Bolshoi - Bigger Giants band, similar in their live act to fellow Beggars Banquet signees, Bauhaus.
Sob Story - The Bolshoi - Bigger Giants was recognized for his dark, pensive lyrics that belied a social responsibility and awareness. After the release of Lindy's Partythe band recorded a fourth album, but problems with their record label management impeded its release, and they disbanded as the s drew to a close. The previously unreleased fourth album, titled Country Lifehad been lost for years but has now been resurrected by Beggars Banquet with extensive help from Tanner's current record label-head, Creative Director, David Paul Wyatt Perko.
