Into a Circle (also as In Two A Circle and In2a0) were an English new wave duo, formed in April 1985 by Bee (Paul Hampshire) and Barry (Jepson), two former members of the band Getting the Fear.[1]

Career[edit]

A second single from the album, "Evergreen" was released in March 1988, which like all previous releases entered the Top 20 of the UK Indie Chart, staying there for a number of weeks.[1]

Bee and Barry carried on working together for a number of years following these releases, but none of the material produced ever reached the public.

A rumoured support slot with Erasure on their Innocents tour was quashed, when record label executives refused to financially back them.

The band broke up in October 1989.

Bee now resides in Thailand, where he is a member of electro-rock band Futon, alongside Simon Gilbert from Suede. Barry still lives in the UK, where he is a tour manager.
