Rip Rig and Panic
Rip Rig & Panic were a post-punk band, founded in 1981 and who broke up in 1983. It was named after a 1965 jazz album by Roland Kirk. It was fronted by Andrea Oliver and its members included singer Neneh Cherry, Sean Oliver, Mark Springer, and Gareth Sager and Bruce Smith, the latter two formerly of The Pop Group. 
The group strayed from more conventional post-punk, mixing avantgarde elements with jazz and led by Cherry's innovative pop/soul singing style. They also recorded with Don Cherry and Nico (on a BBC radio session).
The band notably made a guest appearance in an episode of the British sitcom The Young Ones performing their 1982 single "You're My Kind of Climate". Rip Rig & Panic became Float Up CP in 1985 and produced the album Kill Me in the Morning. The band dissolved shortly thereafter.
Mark Springer has continued to record as a solo artist and has a number of CDs available.
