Useless trivia: Both Trevor Horn and Trevor Rabin who were involved in Owner Of A Lonely Heart, have the middle name Charles.  


Now this is the kind of sh1t we need more of...  Grin

And Trevor Horn once produced a group that had four sisters with the last name Charles!

Just adding to the useless s*** Wink

the original band name was The Producers


The irony is that when they were The Producers they played original material. There are two or three top tunes on their album.

The only thing I know is Barking Up The Right Tree, which is on the Big Stiff Box Set. Is the album worth looking into?

Oh nice one Robert, I didn't make that connection....I assumed it was the US band of the same name on the Stiff box...my knackered old eyes tend not to be able to read sleeve notes anymore.

It is very likable if you have a fondness very polished late 80s sounding pop (Art of Noise, Tears For Fears, Cutting Crew, that sort of thing). Not a masterpiece by any means but it has a fair share of earworms. Perhaps Every Single Night In Jamaica in particular. The album is getting quite hard to find so pick one up quick if you are interested.

I'm not sure what the Stiff connection is as my copy of the album is on an offshoot of Trevor Horn's ZTT label.

Just realized what the connection is. We're both right in essence. The song I mentioned was released as a single on Stiff, but the album was on ZTT.

That's one of the songs on the box set that I never play. I played it last night because I couldn't remember it. Won't be playing it again. Didn't realise that was Trevor Horn. I'm glad he didn't play it at Cropredy.

It's quite pleasant really. I'd never have guessed in a million years it was Lol Creme singing...but then again I thought it was the US band.

(There's a vid on YouTube in case anybody is wondering what the fuss is about.)
