Fat Tulips were a twee band from nottingham, england who released one album, on the Vinyl Japan label, and over 10 singles on
the band’s own Heaven Records and others.
Formed in the late ’80s in Peterborough by one Mark D., the band’s first release was a flexi disc called You Opened Up My Eyes
and featured Sarah C. on vocals. Sarah quickly left the band, supposedly to pursue a career designing crop circles in Peru.
Mark then recruited new members consisting of Katie Keen on vocals, cat lover Paul Huckerby on bass, scottish siren Sheggi
Clarkson-Gaffin on guitar and floppy-haired, pig van driver Matthew Johnson on drums.
