Big Country
Formed in 1981 and with their debut album released two years later, The Crossing broke the band massively worldwide with their classic singles Fields Of Fire, Chance and signature song In A Big Country.

The run of success continued throughout the 80′s with the anthemic single Wonderland and the second album Steeltown in 1984, which debuted at No.1 in the UK and contained the hit singles East Of Eden, Just a Shadow and Where The Rose Is Sown.

Midge Ure
Recipient of many awards that include Ivor Novello and Grammy awards along with a flotilla of gold and platinum records, Midge Ure needs very little introduction. By the time Midge's single If I Was went to No.1 in 1985 he had already crammed several musical lifetimes into a 10 year professional career with Slik, The Rich Kids, Thin Lizzy, Visage, and Ultravox.

Ultravox was a major influence on the new romantic and electro-pop movements with tracks like Reap the Wild Wind, Dancing With Tears in My Eyes, Love's Great Adventure, All Stood Still, The Voice, Hymn, The Thin Wall and 1981's timeless Vienna.

Nick Heyward
His music career began when he formed Haircut 100 in 1981. The band had four UK Top 10 singles, Favourite Shirts, Fantastic Day, Love Plus One and Nobody’s Fool and turned Nick into a major pop pin up.

Nick’s solo career began in 1983 with his debut album North of a Miracle and included three UK Top 14 singles, Whistle Down the Wind, Take That Situation and Blue Hat for a Blue Day.

Curiosity Killed The Cat
Formed in 1986 the band quickly became one of the hottest and most popular of the late 80's. Curiosity Killed The Cat’s many hit singles include Down to Earth, Misfit, Ordinary Day, Hang On In There Baby and Name and Number (which later went on to be a hit single for De La Soul).

Their debut album Keep Your Distance went straight in to the UK album charts at No.1.
