Having formed in 1982 after taking their name from a line in a Scritti Politti song, the band’s first single Wishing I Was Lucky was released in 1987, which started an incredible unbroken run of 27 Top 40 hits. Their debut album Popped in Souled Out spawned three further hit singles Sweet Little Mystery, Angel Eyes (Home And Away) and Temptation. It hit the No.1 slot in January of ’88 before becoming one of the best selling albums of that year and earning them Best Newcomer at The Brit Awards.

The huge success upon its release is only part of the Popped In Souled Out story. Prior to recording the album, the band went to Memphis to work with the world famous producer Willie Mitchell, best known for his vibrant soul work with Al Green on songs such as ‘Let’s Stay Together’ in the 1970’s. Whilst the music they made together wouldn’t appear until 1988 when it became a top 3 album, the spirit of those initial Memphis Sessions is there for all to hear on Popped In Souled Out.
