Diy label: The Laughing Apple was centered around a couple of youthful Scots who relocated to London in June of 1980 prior to forming a new band. Bassist Alan McGee and guitarist Andrew Innes had played in a couple of outfits while still in Scotland, including H20 and Newspeak. In their new confines as Laughing Apple, they self-released the four-song Ha Ha Hee Hee EP in March of 1981 on Autonomy. Their second single, Participate, was issued a couple months later. They broke up in short time, with most of the members going on to bigger and better things. McGee eventually joined Biff Bang Pow! and began the fledgling Creation label. Manufactured And Distributed By Autonomy Records.
