The Mockers were a New Zealand pop band formed in Wellington in 1979 by Andrew Fagan. Fagan was the only ever-present of the band's line-up
whose initial members were mostly drawn from Fagan's Rongotai College classmates. Their songs include "One Black Friday" and "Forever Tuesday
Morning". The Mockers' style drew on punk and new wave influences from the UK and performances centered on Fagan's flamboyant stage presence.
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 original Mockers line-up was Andrew Fagan (guitar, vocals), Gary Curtis (keyboards, vocals), Chas Mannell (drums) and Dale Moynihan (guitar). This line-up lasted until 1982 when the members were variously fired by Fagan.

Andrew Fagan won Top Male Vocalist of the Year in the 1985 RIANZ Awards.

The group broke up in 1988, after which Fagan embarked on a solo career.

ENJOY!
