Rema Rema were an English post punk band, active circa 1979-1980. The band consisted of Gary Asquith (guitar/vocals), Marco Pirroni (guitar), Mick Allen (bass/vocals), Mark Cox (keyboards) and Max (drums). Their sole four-track EP, Wheel In The Roses (on 4AD) , featured one side of studio recordings and another of live material. Their songs Fond Affections and Rema-Rema were later covered by This Mortal Coil and Big Black respectively.
Rema-Rema split up shortly after the EP’s release in April 1980. Pirroni later found fame with Adam and the Ants. Asquith, Allen and Cox formed the short-lived Mass with Danny Briottet. Asquith and Briotett then moved on to Renegade Soundwave, while Cox and Allen stayed with 4AD as part of The Wolfgang Press.
