Coming out of the West Midlands UK, Weeping Messerschmitts cut their teeth supporting school friends The Mighty Lemon Drops.

Initially called The Railway Children (until another band from Manchester nicked the name and pressure from lawyers at Virgin Records forced a change) and briefly managed by Gerry Cott of The Boomtown Rats (until a disagreement about the bands direction forced him to quit) the Messerschmitts gigged constantly all over the UK, creating quite a buzz, building a following and gaining favorable reviews from the music press.

It was no surprise that they were soon offered contracts with 3 major labels before choosing to take the indie route with Upright Records, for whom they recorded one of the greatest lost indie records of the '80s. Unfortunately, this was to be their only release before splitting in '87.
