Named, somewhat perplexingly, after the vacant look often associated with Vietnam veterans,Thousand Yard Stare are a quintessentially English five-piece band from Slough, Berkshire. The band was formed in November 1988 by friends who knew each other from regular evenings at their local venue, Windsor’s Psykik Dance Hall.
Signing to Polydor Records for their debut album back in 1992, their lyrics proved the band’s greatest asset — falling only a little short of the stature of XTC’s — while dealing in similar neo-romantic English themes.
They have supported many popular bands on the indie circuit such as James and Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine.
