Andrew Fagan started writing songs and performing in 1978 with a raw Wellington punk rock group called The Ambitious Vegetables. In 1980 The Mockers were formed and the band toured New Zealand extensively for five years releasing three albums and becoming well known for a plethora of hits including 'Forever Tuesday Morning', 'One Black Friday' and other gems such as 'Swear It's True', 'Woke Up Today' and 'My Girl Thinks She's Cleopatra'. In 1985 Fagan was awarded NZ Male Vocalist Of The Year. In 1987 he relocated to England where The Mockers played around London for several years before parting ways. In 1993 Fagan's solo album 'Blisters' was released and he returned to tour New Zealand with his band 'Swirly World'. The songs 'I Still Want You', 'Jerusalem', 'Exciting' and 'Now You Know' received considerable NZ radio play. Returning to London in 1995, Fagan formed the band 'Lig'. The album 'Bacterial Activity' was released in 1997. The single 'Empty' received support from the late John Peel (Radio One) and MTV Europe. 'Lig' returned to NZ in 2002 performing sporadically for a few years. Fagan And The People were formed in 2008. Amidst several line up changes 'Admiral Of The Narrow Seas' was born. The first single is called 'Religion'.
