Formed in 1982 by Peter Cox (lead vocalist) and Richard Drummie (guitarist and backing vocals) the band burst into the charts with their debut We Close Our Eyes and went on to have a string of hits including Call Me, Don’t Look Down, Goodbye Girl and King of Wishful Thinking, which featured on the blockbuster movie ‘Pretty Woman’ and sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

Their eponymously titled debut album sold 1.5 million copies and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks. They went on to win the people’s choice BRIT Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’ in 1986.
