BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985
The Adventures are a Northern Irish Rock group, formed in Belfast in 1984.
The band later moved to London where they signed to Chrysalis Records and released their first single in 1984.
Lead vocalist Terry Sharpe and guitarist Pat Gribben first worked together when in 1978 they joined punk band The Starjets. The band experienced limited success and disbanded in the early 1980s. Sharpe and Gribben then formed The Adventures in early 1984 with Gribben’s wife, Eileen, Gerard Murphy, Tony Ayre and Paul Crowder. They signed to Chrysalis Records and were taken on by upcoming manager, Simon Fuller, who saw them achieve much publicity and promotion in the music press. Despite this promising start, their debut single, “Another Silent Day”, released in the summer of 1984, failed to chart highly. Further singles were released, all of which were minor hits in the UK Charts, but no major breakthrough was achieved.Their debut album titled, Theodore and Friends (UK) and The Adventures (US), was released in 1985 while the group were on a world tour supporting Tears for Fears. It received much critical acclaim, but again no significant sales.
“Send My Heart” was the second single released from the bands debut album and peaked at #62 on the UK singles chart on October 11, 1984.
