Swing The Mood
This was our debut song released in June 1989 and in August it became our first UK number one spending 5 weeks there and also topped the charts in 10 other contries around the world. The track uses 'In The Mood' as the intro/outro and features classic tracks from Bill Haley and his Comets, Danny and the Juniors, Elvis Presley and the Everly Brothers.
That's What I Like
Our 2nd release shot to number one in the UK in October 1989 and stayed there for 3 weeks. This track used the theme tune to the TV show 'Hawaii-5-0' as the intro/outro, with classic tracks from Dion, Chubby Checker and Little Richard all included in the mix. Once again this track ensured a global hit including number one in Spain and Ireland.
This was our 3rd UK number one and helped us into the history books alongside Gerry and the Pacemakers and Frankie Goes to Hollywood as the only music acts at that time to achieve 3 consecutive UK number ones. It was our Christmas mix and featured classic hits from Slade and Wizzard. This track entered the chart at number one and stayed there for a week.
Our debut album reached number 2 in the UK and was a hit in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden and Australia where it reached number one!
