Sinfear and the Love

Sinfear and the Love

Jane Buckingham - Bass guitar and vocals

John Buckingham - vocals, midi-synths, electric guitar, composer

Jules Buckingham - tenor sax, flute, penny whistle, backing vocals


John Buckingham and Jules Buckingham first began playing together when they were in their teens. They had last played together in the band Orpheus and then they parted company for a number of years to persue their own separate musical routes.

Their paths crossed again back in 1991, when, both tired of playing other people's music and coping with conflicting ego's, the two decided to join forces again.

This time, with a mixture of musical experiences under their belts, they were all set for creating something totally of their own.

Sinfear and the Love was born!

Over the years the style of Sinfear began to evolve . . . .

. . . . as a natural progression Jane Buckingham joined in 1992 and the band was then complete.

The Sinfear and the Love artwork was designed by Jules Buckingham

Unfortunately the changes didn't really work and also other factors
meant that Sinfear and the Love split up early in 1994.
