April Showers biography

There are two artists using this name. April Showers were a short-lived Glaswegian pop duo comprised of Jonathan Bernstein and Beatrice Colin. Releasing their only known single "Abandon Ship" on Big Star, a subsidiary of Chrysalis, in 1984 it quickly gained a cult following due to it's sparkling production from Anne Dudley (Art of Noise) and string-heavy arrangements. This quality was echoed on B-side "Everytime We Say Goodbye" with the 12-inch featuring an instrumental of Abandon Ship "Abandon Ship Sing-A-Long-A-Wonder Mix". Both records are now highly collectible. Plans to release a second single on the label Operation Twilight, and the inclusion of Abandon Ship on the compilation album "10 Years Of Marina Records" seems to be a footnote to the woefully brief story of April Showers, the perfect example of a band that has disappeared into, and whose status grows with, history. There is also an American low-fi acoustic artist going by the same name.
