Hopper were one of those bands you’d see playing the Bull & Gate all the time, I saw them and loved them. Lead singer Rachel was so quiet and demure at first glance and then very scary on stage with a very unique voice.
A 5 track 10” that was quickly seized upon by Steve Lamacq at Radio 1, he made it his single of the week immediately and it all looked very bright for them.
They signed and released 3 singles and an album over the next 18 months. Nothing much really happened after that and the band called it a day in 1998.
Rachel is still involved in music, with various solo projects and I wouldn’t be surprised if she came back with something amazing one day.
