Anyone know where Magenta have got to? I know they broke up probably late 80's/early 90's but does anyone know where individual members are now. Arthur Brown, Mervyn Brown, Pete? we miss you guys.

Last year I saw the great young Irish group Fushia, another word for a shade of reddish-purple. When I saw this thread title, I mistakenly thought of that current group.

Might "Fushia" have named themselves in honor of "Magenta" (of whom I've never heard before)?

Here's the full band personnel, fom a site in Romania (http://www.old-rock.ru/paleontology_review/magenta.html).

Everything on the page but this was in Cyrillic lettering, so I can't help further:

Janet Brown – vocals, guitar, glockenspiel, whistle, electric piano
Arthur Brown – vocals, guitar, mandolin, harmonica
Mervyn Brown – vocals, guitar, whistle, dulcimer
Peter Thompson – vocals, guitar, mandolin, bouzouki
Jenny White – flute

So Thompson must be a bright scarlet colour then, else they'd have been called Mud

The'd have to sing the blues as well, to really make it work...

Sure, Mervyn's living near Cheddar, UK. Still sounds great. He's acting too.
