INFO > Ariel was formed in 1990 by London school mates Mathew Berry, Brendan Melck, and Tom Rowlands. The trio released a couple of singles on different labels before signing with Deconstruction in 1991. Decon demanded that the lads add a lady to the mix, so vocalist Sally Ann Marsh was enlisted; Marsh had recently had a hit with “Move Your Body”, recorded with Richie Malone as Xpansions. 1993’s “Let It Slide” was Ariel’s swan song—the promo CD includes all four tracks from the commercial release; earlier singles “Rollercoaster” and “Mustn’t Grumble”; and digitally exclusive tunes “Food Wine Food” and “The Chunk” from a promo 12 inch. After Ariel disbanded, Tom Rowlands focused full-time on his other, slightly more successful project with Ed Simons.
