Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie Biography (Wikipedia)
Goodbye Mr Mackenzie (known informally as The Mackenzies) was a Scottish 1980s and 1990s rock group formed in Bathgate, near Edinburgh, Scotland. At the band's commercial peak, the line-up consisted of Martin Metcalfe on vocals, John Duncan on guitar, Fin Wilson on bass guitar, Shirley Manson and Rona Scobie on keyboards and backing vocals, and Derek Kelly on drums.
The Mackenzies were a popular local rock group, but were hindered by record company conflicts and inability to gain significant acclaim, record sales or chart positions outside the UK. Internationally, they are best known as the group of which Shirley Manson – the lead singer of alternative rock group Garbage – was once a member.
The band came to prominence in the late 1980s after releasing two independent label singles, and were eventually signed to Capitol Records. After charting in the UK with their debut album, Good Deeds and Dirty Rags, and single release "The Rattler" the band failed to break through, and were shifted to a number of different record labels. The band splintered in 1993, leaving Manson, Metcalfe, Wilson and Kelly to form Angelfish to continue recording music. After Manson left for Garbage in 1994, the Mackenzies continued until their final live show at the end of 1995.
