Rubber Orange

Lee Daly writes: Rubber Orange were Lee Severin – Vocals, Lyrics Lee Dransfield – Guitars Warren Wrigley – Bass Andy – Drums David (Dids) Gill – Keys Formed from the debris of The Jerks, Rubber Orange brought in a new front-man, Lee Severin, and toured extensively throughout the early 1990s. Hailing from Oldham (though singer Lee was a Londoner), they recorded on their own Zest label, and released the Rubber Orange EP in 1991. The release was initially given a harsh review in NME, only to be more favourably reassessed when it was discovered that critic, Barbara Ellen had played the record at the wrong speed. The band split in the mid nineties with Severin going on to form Jubilee who were signed to Silvertone Records. The remaining members continued to play and record together up and until the late 90s.
