In 1983, Peter Brickley was a member of a band called The Telephone Boxes, which had supported The Smiths on their first UK tour. After having recorded a few demos for various uninterested record companies, the band split. In 1985, Brickley formed his own band under the name The Wallflowers. They signed a publishing deal with Intersong/Warner Chappell Music. The Wallflowers released 3 singles: "Blushing Girl Nervous Smile" in 1986 (produced by Pete Hammond of PWL), "Thank You" in 1987 (produced by Andy Partridge of XTC), and "83.7 Degrees" in 1987. A number of other tracks were recorded for a planned album which was to be titled Love, Peace and Pugwash, but was never released, due to the withdrawal of Warner/Chappell. Johnny Marr of The Smiths was also due to work with the band on the album, but due to matters surrounding The Smiths splitting up around this time, it didn't go ahead. Love, Peace and Pugwash was eventually self-released by the band in 2012.
