(Vocal/instrumental group, 1982–99, 2004–present)

Scottish group Marti Pellow (vocals), Neil Mitchell (keyboards), Graeme Clark (bass) and Tom Cunningham (drums) were exponents of blue-eyed soul with a pleasing pop edge. Chart success was immediate in 1987 with ‘Wishing I Was Lucky’ and continued for a decade. Cover version of The Troggs’ ‘Love Is All Around’ from film Four Weddings And A Funeral (1994) spent 15 weeks at UK No. 1. Pellow went solo in 1999 after the hits had dried up, beat a heroin addiction, starred in Chicago and in 2004 re-formed the band.
