Cook Da Books

Profile:
New wave - nu pop band
Formed in 1980 in Liverpool, U.K. Due to their Dennis Bovell produced debut single "Piggie In The Middle Eight", Vladimir Cosma included three of their tracks in the soundtrack of "La Boum 2". The success of "Your Eyes" out of this soundtrack led to tours with Men At Work, The Undertones and Joan Armatrading. Their 1983 album was produced by Pierre Jaubert and their second and last was produced by Marc Annaloro. In 1986 they covered Stevie Wonder's "Livin' For The City" and they were included again in a soundtrack of Vladimir Cosma, for the animated film "Astérix Chez Les Bretons" with their single "The Look Out Is Out", a song based on Plastic Bertrand's "Asterix Est La". In 1989 just Owen Moran, Peter Deary were remained from the original line up of the group. In the '90s Peter Deary formed Smaller.
