ABOUT THEM:

In 1992 Caroline Kennedy-McCracken as lead vocalist and guitarist formed The Plums as an indie guitar pop four-piece group with guitarist Steve Moffat and drummer Shamus Goble – all three were ex-Jack and the Beanstalk – and they were joined by McCracken on bass guitar. According to rock music historian, Ian McFarlane, "The Plums mixed strident guitar riffs with melodic pop roots. Kennedy was the band's focal point with her tough-but-graceful presence, opinionated views and emotion-charged, if imperfect, vocals". Influenced as much by Sonic Youth as The Sundays, the band were fiercely independent and subcultural, despite their pop sound. Live, the band were unpredictable and patchy, with flashes of brilliance.
The band were signed to Mushroom's Temptation label soon after they recorded their first extended play Au Revoir Sex Kitten, which was issued by that label in November 1992. The Plums recorded another EP, Read All Over (May 1993), and followed with a studio album, Gun (April 1994) which was picked up and played by national radio broadcaster, JJJ. Their last recording was an EP, Heavenly, which was released in June 1995 and the band broke up in August.
