Being one of the more prominent Indie / Alternative bands from the early / mid 1980’s, Skeletal Family enjoyed relatively major national and international success. From topping the National UK Indie Charts for three weeks in Autumn 1984 with debut album “Burning Oil” (above other contemporary northern bands The Smiths & New Order) to recording seven BBC Radio One sessions for John Peel, Janice Long & Kid Jensen.

Their impressive live show at this time brought them to the attention of The Sisters of Mercy front man Andrew Eldritch, who, after seeing a local performance, invited them as special guests on their 1984 Black October tour. The next two years saw the band gracing the stage with acts such as Siouxsie & The Banshees, Spear Of Destiny & The Mission etc..
