but music is not the only thing
in her life. We spoke to her as
she prepared to visit Bolton and
she said she was currently
preparing for her part in a new

stars alongside Gene Hackman. She
has also recently agreed to take

Julian Godfrey Brookhouse
(guitar), Nicholas Bernard Throp
(bass), Michael Drummond (drums),
and Toby Anderson (keyboards),
they released the toe-tapping
single Misfit in July 1986. In
early 1987 Down to Earth was a
huge Top-10 hit in the UK.
HOWARD Jones released
his first single, New Song, in
the UK in 1983 and expected it to
sell a few thousand copies.
However, it steadily climbed the
charts to peak at number 3 and
his second, What Is Love? went
straight in at number 1, as did
his debut album, Human's Lib. But
it was probably the single Like
To Get To Know You Well that
really catapulted Jones to fame.
IT was 1982 when Peter
Cox and Richard Drummond first
pulled their artistic talents
together to form Go West. The
song We Close Our Eyes was
released it in 1985 and it
reached number 4 in the charts.
It also became top 10 in the
states which is when
Peter's love affair with the
country began. He relocated there
in the early 90s and re-emerged
into the limelight in the reality
TV show, Reborn in the USA. Go
West also had a huge hit in 1991
with King of Wishful Thinking
the opening song of the
film Pretty Woman.
IN the past few years
the gold-suited lead singer of
ABC, Martin Fry, has
live and says excitedly:
"We're going to rip it up at
Bolton. There is nothing as
exciting and enjoyable as playing
live." Martin, whose hit
songs included The Look of Love
and Shoot That Poisoned Arrow,
says: "My old stuff is just
as relevant, it is what the fans
want and they are the people who
really matter. "That's what
I'll be doing at Bolton Reebok .
. . and tell 'em that, yes, I'll
be wearing the gold suit!"
T'PAU burst onto the
music scene in 1987 with Heart
& Soul which reached number 4
in both the UK and US charts.
T'Pau comprised Carol Decker on
vocals and her then partner of 13
years, Ron Rogers on guitar, plus
four session musicians. The
single China In Your Hand stayed
at number one in the UK for five
weeks in 1987. Carol, now 46 and
