The band formed in 1986 in Shropshire by charismatic flame-haired frontwoman Carol Decker and her co-writer Ronnie Rogers (her boyfriend at the time), taking their name from a Vulcan elder of the same name in the sci-fi series Star Trek. They enjoyed success for several years in Europe and America, touring the world at one time for 17 months non-stop.
The original line-up called it a day in 1991.
Ronnie & Carol continue to write, record and tour as T'Pau.
