Th' Faith Healers were a UK indie rock group who were active between 1990 and 1994 and part of the so-called Camden lurch scene. They recorded multiple EPs and singles along with two full LPs. The members of the group were Roxanne Stephen (Vocals), Tom Cullinan (Guitar/Vocals), Ben Hopkin (Bass), and Joe Dilworth (Drums).

Tom Cullinan, who handled the bulk of the songwriting, went on to help form the band Quickspace. Signed to Too Pure in the UK, their albums were released by Elektra in the US. Both albums feature clear krautrock influences, most evident in their cover of Can's "Mother Sky", from Lido.

The band reformed in 2009, playing at the All Tomorrow's Parties music festival twice - first in May (curated by The Breeders) and then again in December (curated by My Bloody Valentine).
