Mission UK

Mission UK (in the US) and the Mission (in the UK) is a Gothic rock band formed in 1986 by Wayne Hussey[?] and Craig Adams[?] (both of Sisters of Mercy), soon adding Mick Brown[?] (of Red Lorry Yellow Lorry[?]) and Simon Hinkler[?] (of Artery[?]). They called themselves "the Mission", but had to change it to "Mission UK" for their American releases. Their debut album was God's Own Medicine[?], a hit in the UK in spite of critical derision for perceived pomposity and excessive similarities to Yes and Led Zeppelin. Their second album was Children[?], another British hit. A series of personnel problems didn't keep the group from continuing to record, though by 1992, only Hussey was left from the original line-up. The band's latest album is Blue[?] (1996 in music).
