Jangle pop is a genre of alternative rock from the mid-1980s that "marked a return to the chiming or jangly guitars and pop melodies of the '60s" bands such as The Byrds, with their electric twelve-string guitars and power pop song structures. Mid-1980s jangle pop was a non-mainstream "pop-based format" with "some folk-rock overtones". Between 1983 and 1987, Southern-pop bands like R.E.M., Let's Active or Tom Petty and a subgenre called "Paisley Underground" incorporated psychedelic influences.

Formed in 1986 by school friends Matthew Bolton on bass, and Eddie Taylor with his guitar, in Eddies dads garage. A recording of Everything was added to numerous compilation tapes and The Apple Moths quickly grew, adding Matthews brother Richard on vocals and tambourine, and cousin Steven Hadcroft (the ginger wizard) on Keyboards. The band moved offices to Richards attic bedroom where they wrote some tunes and began to gig. Soon after, The Apple Moths were picked up by A Turntable Friend, and released the Fred Astaire ep on 7 the band split shortly after with Matt, Steven and Richard going on to form Windy Miller. Today Matthew is still teetering on the outskirts of the bradford music scene but prefers rock band on the wii, Steven moved into programming games for mobile phones, he is still a ginger wizard. Eddie rides his bike and is in a local covers band and Richard is the front man of Bradford Punk Pop band Idiot Box. Kymri appeared only on compilations, it wasn't officially released by the band. Jangle pop perfection.
