Spearmint are a London-based indie pop band, founded in 1995. Their founding members were Shirley Lee (lead vocals, guitar), Simon Calnan (vocals, keyboards), Martin Talbot (bass), and Ronan Larvor (drums). Talbot left soon afterward, to be replaced by James Parsons. Parsons later became a second guitarist, with Andy Lewis joining on bass guitar. The group has received coverage in the NME, Time Out, Melody Maker and Uncut magazines.
