Rachel Stamp were formed in 1994 when David Ryder Prangley met Will Crewdson before recruiting Cliff Harris and Mike Rowe. The band signed to WEA Records, but were dropped without releasing the album they had recorded for the label. Their debut album Hymns For Strange Children was recorded in two weeks with John Fryer (HIM, Nine Inch Nails, White Zombie) as record producer, and upon its release went to the top of the NME's Independent Chart. The band next signed to Pure Stirling Records, who released their second album Oceans Of Venus in the UK. It was subsequently released in the US by Captiva Records, and in Germany through Sony Music. The band was inactive for a few years despite never officially splitting up, and reformed in 2009, initially to support their best of compilation album, Now I'm Nailed To Your Bedroom Wall, I've Only Got Myself To Blame. This was followed by a short UK tour in late 2009.
In 2010, Will Crewdson and David Ryder-Prangley played alongside Adam Ant on guitar and bass for performances around London. Ant and former longtime collaborator Marco Pirroni had previously guested with Rachel Stamp at a 1997 gig at the original Camden Monarch. Crewdson later returned to Ant's band as joint guitarist in early 2014 (appearing on the concert DVD Dirk Live At The Apollo) and is still presently a member. He was sole guitarist for Ant following the sudden death of bandmate Tom Edwards during a US tour in January 2017 until the recruitment of replacement Adam Leach later that year. Crewdson is also currently working with a band called LIVAN, fronted by Greek-born musician Cosmas Livanos.
Will Crewdson and Sheheena Dax have also formed a band She Made Me Do It. They have released two EPs - "She Made Me Do It" and Garbos Pool, with an album due out in 2015 and in January 2015 supported Sigue Sigue Sputnik at Electrowerkz. John Robb (Louder Than War) made them his artist of the day in September 2013.
