1979 to 2006
Mansfield, England, United Kingdom
B-Movie formed in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire during 1978 from the ashes of local punk band The Aborted. Originally calling themselves Studio 10 after a local hairdressing salon, the inaugural line-up of Steve Hovington (vocals/bass), Paul Statham (guitar) & Graham Boffey (drums) quickly changed their name to B-Movie following Steve's discovery in an art book of the Andy Warhol painting of the same name. Inspired by synth-pop pioneers like Ultravox and New Order, B-Movie wrote catchy songs enveloped in keyboards.
