‘Mummy Calls,’ To My Surprise, Is A Real Band

A large part of my enjoyment of Joel Schumacher‘s The Lost Boys came from the music it featured.  Schumacher always had an eye, or should I say an ear, for matching popular music to his productions, and The Lost Boys was no different.  The soundtrack contained some great songs by artists like Gerald McMann, Echo And The Bunnymen (terrible name, great band), Inxs and Jimmy Barnes, among others.

Though one of my favorite songs was Beauty Has Her Way, by Mummy Calls.  I had always assumed that they were a novelty act, created just for the movie, like The Monkees (who began life as a novelty band–essentially an Americanized version of The Beatles–that became real).

Though Mummy Calls were always the real deal.  They were active in the mid-Eighties, though they broke up after one album.

They’re also a bit glam, with some really huge hair and mullets, but the song is awesome.
