Nights at the Roundtable with The Impossibles, a duo from the early 90's, riding part of the Madchester wave with their second single "Delphis" from 1991.
September 2, 2011

The Impossibles - hardly together long enough to do publicity photos.

Another in the seemingly endless procession of bands that broke up too soon, never made it out of the starting gate or just had bad luck.

The Impossibles are almost totally unknown, but were an important part of that early 90's phenomenon known as Madchester. The duo, consisting of Lucy Dallas and Mags Grundy, had three singles issued which had the hand of My Bloody Valentine among other Madchester luminaries in on production chores. And lots of potential.

But, like many bands with lots of promise and potential, they came and went in a flash. Lasting for a little over a year before disappearing from the scene, not to be heard from again.

Tonight's track is their second single. Delphis has been highly regarded by collectors as a favorite of the three singles issued by them. Didn't make much dent in sales, so their label Fontana abandoned the cause late in 1991 and all we're left with is a handful of singles.

Seems to be more the rule than the exception with groups, even now. Some things just don't change.
