Anne Clark and band

Anne Clark (born Croydon, London, England, 14 May 1960) is an English poet and songwriter. Clark is mainly a spoken word artist, but she also plays piano and occasionally accompanies herself, with piano and voice mixing in a somewhat atypical new wave style. Many of her lyrics deal critically with the imperfections of humanity, everyday life, and politics. Especially in her early works she has created a gloomy, melancholy kind of atmosphere bordering on weltschmerz. In 1985, Clark released the album Pressure Points. It was created in cooperation with John Foxx, who had founded Ultravox. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne_Clark)

Not completely sure about the line up. These guys were the band Silly Taboo, for which Kilbourne was the singer. I'm not sure if he was in Anne Clark's band and if so, what he did.
