The Mock Turtles were a Manchester-based indie rock band, formed in Rochdale, who enjoyed some success in the early 1990s. Their signature tune was "Can You Dig It?" Led by Martin Coogan, brother of television regular Steve Coogan, the band began to pick up attention around 1990, with tracks such as "Lay Me Down" and "And Then She Smiles" on the Imaginary label. It was "Can You Dig It?", however, which gained them wider attention.
