The Mock Turtles (1985- )

The Mock Turtles The Mock Turtles are an indie band from Middleton fronted by Martin Coogan, older brother of Steve Coogan. The Mock Turtles recorded music at the Parish Bowman Studios, a converted factory on Boarshaw estate (as did Lisa Stansfield and the Chameleons). Here they are performing “Can You Dig It?” live on The Word (I can't believe we danced like that in 1991!)
