Andrew Fagan's Mockers were hugely successful in an early-mid 80s New Zealand obsessed with then-current crop of British pop. Fagan's vocal inflection (slightly nasal, almost morrissey like at times) were the absolute focal point of the band, a pop-orientated rotating cast of support men, specifically noteable for the mammoth hit (and a genuine kiwi classic, despite how british it sounds) 'forever tuesday morning'.
The band initially formed in 1979 as The Ambitious Vegetables, a highly visible member of the Wellington terrace community with the line-up of Gordon Costello, Andrew Fagan, Gary Curtis and Charlie Mannell who were all at Rongotai College together. Their original songs were written by Gordon Costello when he was aged approximately 10, eg, "Strathmore Slum Shuffle", etc, etc. Gary Curtis wrote many of their songs as well and continued on to write most of the music for The Mockers.
The Mockers first debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 9 July 2007 with the album Woke Up Today: The Definitive. There is one entry by The Mockers in the charts.
