14 November 2021 – After building overwhelming anticipation and delivering a number one hit single, the Northampton boy band The Marabar Caves release their highly anticipated single ‘Trouble, after a long break in 34 years, today via Massive Rodent Records England, the country’s leading music company.
Trouble is a song about having too much fun from time to time. Despite their aggregate age of almost 230, the band can still teach the young people of Northampton a thing or two about music!
Marabar Caves were formed in Northampton in 1982. The band was started by guitarists Tony Risely and Bill Westley together with drummer Steve Goddard and bassist Chris Jess. They recorded the single ‘Seeds that Never Grew/Sally’s Place’. This was followed by the e.p. Eyes of Fire. Marabar Caves eventually split in 1994. The band reformed in 2018 with bassist Duncan Bisatt replacing Chris Jess.
The band played a lot of shows in London and the surrounding areas, including opening for Doctor and the Medics and Wilco Johnson. Tony and Steve went on to form the successful and long-lived Bushpigs after Marabar Caves split in 1994.
