The Cranes

The Cranes

Formed in 1986 in Portsmouth, England by siblings Alison and Jim Shaw, and named after the many mechanical cranes around the city's docks. Cranes are best known for the childlike, high-pitched vocals of lead singer Alison.

One reviewer described the band: "Imagine a small child singing lullabies at the bottom of the well with a background of grinding guitars".
