Bucks Fizz

Bucks Fizz are an English pop music group, formed in 1981 to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest that year. They won with "Making Your Mind Up", which is still their best-known song. The group was initially made up of four vocalists: Bobby G, Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston, whose gimmick was that they were all blond. The group went on to have a successful career around the world, although their biggest success was in the UK where they had three No.1 singles and became one of the top-selling groups of the 1980s. Their worldwide record sales have exceeded 15 million. Jay Aston left the band in 1985 and was soon replaced by Shelley Preston. After a few changes within the band and a fragmentation of the band due to Bobby Gee's creation of his own Bucks Fizz band, the band hasn't stopped touring. Originally as a 3-piece band with Shelley Preston, since 2009 original member Jay Aston returned and now Bucks Fizz continue touring as The Original Bucks Fizz, minus Bobby Gee. On May 24, 2010 they released a new version of their 1984 hit, I Hear Talk, as a stripped down jazzy version. It is also expected that they record a new album in the near future plus a DVD of one of their recent shows. It is important to mention that they are considered as the U.K. version of ABBA.

The Human League

The Human League are an English electronic new wave band formed in Sheffield, England in 1977. They achieved popularity after a key change in line-up in the early 1980s and have continued recording and performing with moderate commercial success throughout the 1980s up to the present day. The only constant band member since 1977 is vocalist and songwriter Philip Oakey. Originally an avant-garde all-male synthesizer-based group, they evolved into a commercially successful synthpop outfit under Oakey's leadership, yielding the group's biggest-selling album, Dare (1981). Since 1987, the band has essentially been a trio of Oakey and long-serving female vocalists Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley (who joined the band in 1980), with various sidemen. The Human League has influenced many electro-pop, other synthpop, and mainstream acts including Madonna, La Roux, Moby, Pet Shop Boys, and Little Boots. They have been sampled and covered by various artists including Utah Saints, Ministry of Sound, Craig David, George Michael, KMFDM, and Robbie Williams. Since 1978, The Human League have released 8 studio albums, 26 singles (including eight UK Top 10 singles with two #1 singles in the U.S./UK) and played over 350 live concerts. The band have sold more than 20 million records worldwide.

Reproduction (1979)

Reproduction is The Human League's debut album, released in October, 1979 through Virgin Records. Reproduction contains nine tracks of electronic music/synthpop and was recorded during six weeks at The Human League's studio in Sheffield. The recordings were produced by Colin Thurston, who had previously worked on some key new wave recordings such as Iggy Pop's Lust for Life and the first Magazine album, and would go on to produce numerous hit albums of the 1980s, most notably for Duran Duran. The album was a commercial failure upon its initial release in October 1979, but it was re-issued and charted almost two years later in August 1981, earning a Silver disc by the end of the year and peaking at # 34 in early 1982. The album spent a total of 23 weeks on the album chart and was later certified Gold by the BPI in 1988. The only single released from the album was "Empire State Human" which initially failed to chart, but was re-released in June 1980 (with a free single taken from the band's second album Travelogue) and reached #62. The band's debut single from 1978, "Being Boiled", was not included on the original release of Reproduction, but was added as an extra track on all CD issues from the late 1980s onwards. A re-recorded version of that single's B-side, "Circus of Death", was however included on the album. The album also features The Human League's cover version of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling", a hit single back in 1965 for The Righteous Brothers. The album was composed and engineered by The Human League (Oakey/Ware/Marsh) and Bob Last. The only single released from this album was Empire State Human (#62 U.K., 1980). Being Boiled, though not originally included in this album is another single from this album (#6 U.K., 1982).

2-) Circus of Death.
3-) The Paths of Least Resistance.
4-) Blind Youth.

Travelogue (1980)

Travelogue is The Human League's second studio album, released on May, 1980. The band had yet to achieve any degree of commercial success. For Travelogue, the band worked with a new producer, Richard Mainwaring, who went on to produce OMD's platinum selling Architecture & Morality the following year. Travelogue entered the UK album chart at #16, which was also its chart peak, and remained on the chart for 9 weeks in 1980. Although a vast improvement on their debut album, Reproduction, which had failed to chart at all the year before, the lack of high success precipitated the departure of founding band members Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh, who went on to form Heaven 17. Their departure led to remaining members Phil Oakey and Adrian Wright moving The Human League in a new musical direction with a new line-up. As the new band then began to make a commercial impact the following year, Travelogue re-entered the chart in August 1981 for a further 33 weeks, eventually being certified Gold by the BPI in May 1982. Two songs were released as singles from the album; a new version of the band's first single, "Being Boiled" (as part of the Holiday '80 EP released a month before the album), and a cover of Mick Ronson's "Only After Dark" (which was ultimately given away as a free single with a re-issue of the band's 1979 single "Empire State Human" in June 1980). Neither of these were successful, though "Being Boiled" would be re-issued once again in early 1982 when it finally became a top 10 hit. The album also featured a cover of the famed advertising jingle for Gordon's Gin, written by Jeff Wayne. Virgin Records remastered and re-issued Travelogue on CD in 1988, with an expanded track listing which included the Holiday '80 EP, the disco single "I Don't Depend on You" (originally released under the moniker "The Men"), and the single "Boys and Girls", which had been produced by Oakey and Wright after the line-up split. The singles released from this album were: Only After Dark and Being Boiled (#6 U.K., 1982).

2-) Only After Dark.
3-) Life Kills.
4-) Dreams of Leaving.

15-) Boys and Girls (CD only).
16-) I Don't Depend on You. (CD only).
17-) Cruel (CD only).

Dare (1981)

Dare (or Dare! in the U.S.) is The Human League's third studio album, released on October 20, 1981. The style of the album is the result of the rapid evolution of The Human League from experimental avant-garde electronic group into a commercial pop group under Philip Oakey's creative direction following the departure of fellow founding members Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh and later inclusion of background vocalists, the teenagers and close friends, Joanne Catherall and Susanne Sulley. Dare became critically acclaimed and has proved to be a genre-defining album, whose influence can be felt in many areas of pop music today. The album and its four singles were hugely successful commercially, with the album reaching #1 in the UK and being certified Triple Platinum by the BPI. The singles released from this album were: The Sound of the Crowd (#12 U.K.), Love Action (I Believe in Love) (#3 U.K.), Open Your Heart (#6 U.K.), and Don't You Want Me? (#1 U.K., #1 U.S.).

Fascination! (1983)

Fascination! is The Human League's EP released in 1983, to fill the gap between the studio albums Dare and Hysteria. Fascination! contains six tracks, including two versions of their single "(Keep Feeling) Fascination" as well as "Mirror Man", both of which were hits in the UK and the U.S. Also included is "Hard Times", which was originally the B-side of their 1981 hit "Love Action" and also appears on the band's 1982 remix album Love and Dancing. The featured version of "I Love You Too Much" is an earlier version of the song that would later be released on the band's Hysteria album in 1984. The singles released from this EP were: Mirror Man (#2 U.K., #30 U.S.), and (Keep Feeling) Fascination (#2 U.K., #8 U.S.).

Hysteria (1984)

Hysteria is The Human League's fourth studio album, released in May, 1984. Following the worldwide success of their 1981 album Dare, the band struggled to make a successful follow-up and the sessions for Hysteria were fraught with problems. The album name itself is taken from the problematic recording period. Producers Martin Rushent and Chris Thomas both left the project which would eventually be finished by producer Hugh Padgham. By the time Hysteria was released, three years had passed since Dare and the album met with relatively lacklustre success in comparison to its multi-platinum predecessor. Three singles from the album made the top-twenty of the UK singles chart but first single The Lebanon was the only song to chart in the U.S., stalling at number sixty-four on the Billboard Hot 100. The album peaked at number three in the UK, later being certified Gold. In 2005 Hysteria was remastered and re-issued with B-sides and extended mixes as bonus tracks. The singles released from this album were: The Lebanon (#11 U.K.), Life on Your Own (#16 U.K.), and Louise (#13 U.K.).

2-) I Love You Too Much.
3-) Rock Me Again and Again and Again and Again and Again and Again (Six Times).

Crash (1986)

Crash is The Human League's fifth studio album, released in September, 1986. Unlike the band’s previous and subsequent albums it is R&B influenced. This album was produced by Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis who were responsible at the time for producing Janet Jackson's Control album. Crash would provide the band with their second US No 1 single "Human" the same year.The singles released from this album were: Human (#8 U.K., #1 U.S.), I Need Your Loving (#44 U.S.), and Love Is All That Matters (#41 U.K., 1988).

Romantic? (1990)

Romantic? is The Human League's sixth studio album, released in September, 1990 through Virgin Records. Romantic? had several producers, most notably Martin Rushent, who worked with the Human League on their biggest commercial success (Dare!) and had walked out of the recording sessions for its follow-up (Hysteria). Also producing several tracks is Mark Brydon, who would found Moloko several years later. The album was not critically well received, many critics proclaiming the album's sound as "dated". The only significant success came from the album's first single "Heart Like a Wheel", which peaked at No. 29 in the UK singles chart and No. 32 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The second single "Soundtrack to a Generation" charted at No. 77 in the UK. As a result, the band's long-standing contract with Virgin Records was terminated. The Human League then moved to East West Records to release their next album, 1995's Octopus. The singles released from this album were: Heart Like a Wheel (#29 U.K., #32 U.S.), and Soundtrack to a Generation (#77 U.K.).

Octopus (1995)

Octopus is The Human League's seventh studio album, released on January 27, 1995. It was produced by former Tears for Fears keyboardist Ian Stanley and released by EastWest Records in 1995. It was the first new album from the Human League in five years after the termination of their long-term contract with Virgin Records. Octopus was the first Human League album which presented the band as a trio consisting of singers Philip Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley. Former Human League member Jo Callis and Keyboard player Neil Sutton also contributed to the writing of the album. The album's sound is notable for the nearly-exclusive use of analog synthesizers, a marked change from the band's primarily "digital" sound in the mid-to-late 80s. Octopus saw a return to the public eye for The Human League, who had been out of the top ten since their 1986 album Crash. The first single "Tell Me When" received support from MTV in the UK and the U.S. and the song became the band's first top-ten hit in nine years, peaking at number six in the UK singles chart (the single also climbed to number thirty-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100). The Octopus album also peaked at number six in the UK, becoming the Human League's sixth top-ten album. It was later certified Gold. The album's second single, "One Man in My Heart", was a ballad sung by Sulley which also reached the UK top-twenty and the third single from the album, "Filling up with Heaven", was also a top-forty UK hit. Although the album sold well and created a resurgence in interest in the band, East West Records went through a complete change in management and decided to cancel the band's contract as well as those of other established artists. It took the band another six years before they released a new album on a new label (Papillion Records). The singles released from this album were: Tell Me When (#6 U.K., #31 U.S.), One Man in My Heart (#13 U.K.), and Filling up with Heaven (#36 U.K.).


1-) Tell Me When.
2-) These Are the Days.
3-) One Man in My Heart.

8-) Never Again.
9-) Cruel Young Lover.

Secrets (2001)

Secrets is The Human League's eighth and so far last studio album, released on August 6, 2001 by Papillion Records. As with their previous album Octopus, the band was presented as a trio of singers Philip Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley (credited by her married name Susan Ann Gayle, which she would later drop professionally in October 2007), although band member Neil Sutton also contributed songwriting and keyboard parts. Secrets received a delayed release in the United States the following year. The album contains sixteen tracks, seven of which are short, instrumental transitional compositions. Upon its release Secrets earned positive reviews from music critics, although commercial success was hampered due to the bankruptcy of Papillon (a division of Chrysalis Records) shortly after its release. The first single "All I Ever Wanted" returned the Human League to the UK singles chart after a five year absence peaking at number forty-seven. After the collapse of Papillon Records; in 2003 a follow-up single from 'Secrets', "Love Me Madly?" was released privately by Michiel Van Bokhorst's Nukove Records, a company set up especially to release Human League records. The singles released from this album were: All I Ever Wanted (#47 U.K.) and Love Me Madly?

Kate Bush

Catherine Bush was born on July 30, 1958 in Bexleyheath, Kent, England. She is an English singer-songwriter, musician and record producer. Her eclectic musical style and idiosyncratic vocal style have made her one of the United Kingdom's most successful solo female performers of the past 30 years. Bush was signed by EMI at the age of 16 after being recommended by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour. In 1978, at age 19, she topped the UK Singles Chart for four weeks with her debut song "Wuthering Heights", becoming the first woman to have a UK number-one with a self-written song and was the most photographed woman in the United Kingdom that year.
In 1979 she did her only tour, The Tour of Life, which was produced, choreographed, directed by Kate herself. This show proved to be ahead of its time and Kate not only sang and played piano but also did dance routines and mime moments. Also, urban legend reveals that Kate was the one who invented the wireless mike in order to allow her to do her choreographies and sing at the same time, with her hands free. Then, Bush released the 1980 album Never for Ever, which made her the first British solo female artist to top the UK album charts and the first female artist ever to enter the album chart at No. 1. In 1987, she won a BRIT Award for Best British Female Solo Artist. She has released eight studio albums, three of which topped the UK Albums Chart, and has had UK Top 10 hit singles with "Wuthering Heights", "Running Up That Hill", "King of the Mountain", "Babooshka", "The Man with the Child in His Eyes" and "Don't Give Up". In 2002, Bush's songwriting ability was recognised with an Ivor Novello Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. In 2005 she released Aerial, her first album in 12 years. The album earned her a BRIT Award nomination for Best Album and another for Best Solo Female Artist. During the course of her career, she has also been nominated for three Grammy Awards. It is also very noticeable to say that she has almost never performed covers and almost all of the material she has released has been written solely by herself, both music and lyrics. Her unmatched talent, the originality of the themes she writes about in her songs, and the particularity of being totally involved in everything she does in her art, has inspired a lot of female artists, even from her own generation, older than her, and artists from recent years.
The Kick Inside (1978)

The Kick Inside is Kate's debut album, released on February 17, 1978. It The Kick Inside is the debut album by the British singer Kate Bush.
