'Til Tuesday were an excellent and intelligent 1980s New Wave rock quartet from Boston, Massachusetts. The group first got together in 1982. The band members were: Aimee Mann (vocals/bass), Robert Holmes (vocals/guitar), Joey Pesce (keyboards), and Michael Hausman (drums). Their music was distinguished by Mann's beautiful vocals, exceptionally literate lyrics, thoughtful and mature subject matter, and rich, lovely melodies. 'Til Tuesday started out playing around the Boston area and won Boston's WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble battle of the bands contest in 1983. They subsequently signed with the label Epic Records and released their debut album "Voices Carry" in 1985. The haunting and poignant titular tune was a substantial hit single; it peaked at #8 on the Billboard pop radio charts. The album also sold well; it reached #19 on the Top 20 album charts. Moreover, the music video for "Voices Carry" won the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist. Alas, the band's follow-up 1986 album "Welcome Home" was less successful; it barely cracked the Top 50 at #49 on the Billboard album charts. The moving song "What About Love" did a little better; it went all the way to #26 on the Billboard pop radio charts. Although their third and final album "Everything's Different Now" received positive notices from music critics in 1988, it nonetheless was a complete commercial flop. 'Til Tuesday broke up in 1988. Aimee Mann has since gone on to have a hugely successful solo career while Michael Hausman serves as Mann's manager.
