More information: UK band LIVES AND TIMES revolved around the talents of composer and multi-instrumentalist Richard Wileman and vocalist Lorna Cumberland, with various musicians employed for supporting roles. The project was formed in 1988, and for the first few years they released various cassette only productions prior to the release of their proper debut album "Rattlebone" in 1992. "The Pull of a Tide" followed in 1993, and in 1994 they released two albums on Dutch label SI Records - "Waiting For The Parade" and "The Great Sad Happy Ending".
Two years later "There And Back Again Lane" appeared, the final album featuring the talents of vocalist Cumberland. Ileesha Bailey replaced her in 1996, and she appeared on "Hoarse" in 1997, the final production to be released by Lives & Times. Wileman and Bailey reappeared the following year in a new band, Karda Estra.
