The Bible is one of those bands that writers and singers often cite as one of their favourite bands of all time – they were hugely critically acclaimed but never quite made the big commercial breakthrough.

Formed in the mid eighties around singer Boo Hewerdine, and keyboard/percussion player Tony Shepherd, The Bible released debut album Walking the Ghost Back Home in 1986 on independent record label Backs Records, enjoying a top-ten hit on the UK Independent chart and catching the attention of Chrysalis Records. In January 1988, the band’s second album, Eureka, was released with single Honey Be Good giving them another hit in 1989.
