The funky carefree Pop
band hit immediately when 'Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)' charted in 1981, helped by pin-up singer Nick Heyward. After their hits 'Love Plus One
', 'Fantastic Day', 'Nobody's Fool' and Pelican West (all 1982), plans were made for a TV series. However, stardom had taken its toll on Heyward
, who quit soon after.
The band's percussionist Mark Fox led their final album Paint And Paint (1983), while Heyward went solo with North Of A Miracle (1983), Postcards From Home (1986), I Love You Avenue (1988), From Monday To Sunday (1993), Tangled (1995) and World's End (1997).
