Haircut 100 was a British New Wave band fronted by Nick Heyward. Pelican West was their debut album, and achieved instant success in their native Great Britain, where this was one of 4 Top-10 hits. In America, this was their only song that caught on, aided by an intriguing video that got a lot of airplay on MTV at a time when the network had very few videos to choose from. The group appeared poised for stardom, but Heyward left in 1983 to pursue a solo career. The group continued to be popular back home, but broke up the following year. They briefly reunited to perform for fans in 2004. (thanks, Mike - Santa Barbara, CA)
