The Singer and Actress Clare Grogan started her 30 year long career as a schoolgirl Popstar in her band Altered Images.
By day she was studying for her A Levels and at night she was touring with Siouxsie and the Banshees, playing festivals alongside Echo and the Bunnymen, The Human League, U2 and recording sessions for legendry DJ, John Peel.
The band were signed to Epic Records in 1981 the same year Clare appeared in the BAFTA winning comedy Gregory's Gril. Clare never got to finish her exams – she wasn’t too upset!
Altered Images quickly had worldwide success, selling millions of records, which topped the charts in several countries. They recorded 3 Top 10 Albums – Happy Birthday, Pinky Blue and Bite. They had 6 Top Ten Singles working with world famous producers - Martin Rushent, Tony Visconti and Mike Chapman. They were voted best new group at the NME awards the same year they were invited to play at The Royal Command Performance.
After an eighteen-year gap in performing with Altered Images, Clare has been persuaded to sing their hits again and continues to play in front of huge and enthusiastic crowds.
Altered Images have an array of artistes who happily describe themselves as fans, from Florence and the Machine to The Foo Fighters. Their hit song Happy Birthday has been covered by Courtney Love, The Ting Tings, The Wedding Party to name but a few. Their songs constantly turn up in the soundtracks to movies and adverts and Clare recently performed on stage with hit band of the moment, The Drums, who described her as ‘their favourite pop idol’.
