Intastella were the more dance orientated resurrection of Laugh. They were heralded as Manchester’s answer to Saint Etienne, but I would liken them more to the World of Twist. They even had a token dancer called Little Anthony.
They rode on the Madchester wave, and were lumped into that scene. Eventhough they put out some great pop songs. This is what Century is a pop song, with lead singers Stella Grundy’s hushed breathy vocals.
Grundy is now a successful actress and has appeared in Coronation Street. As for the whereabouts of Little Anthony, please write to the usual address.
