Hi Steve. My first ever question on here! I have often wondered where the name The Dolphin Brothers came from, forgive me if this has been asked before. I was also wondering how you now look back on that period and if you had any other unseen pics from that time. All the best Darren.

I believe the name came up one time at a meeting at Virgin and we put it on a list of options. I don’t recall who suggested it. During that period Richard and I were following what options we had in terms of label support and considering Virgin were mainly interested in backing projects aimed at the more commercial end of the spectrum that’s where we found ourselves experimenting.

These photos are slightly later than the Dolphin Brothers recording, they were part of the session we did with the Douglas brothers for Rain Tree Crow. Reminiscent of Man Ray.
