Brilliant

Profile:
Brit-funk pop group, active in the British 80s nu pop scene. Formed when Killing Joke's Youth left his group and along with Ben Watkins (later, Juno Reactor) and Jimmy Cauty (later one half of The KLF) they started the group, releasing singles from 1982 to 1984. The first line up was completed with Marcus Myers and Guy Pratt, later in Icehouse.

In their first four years of existence, they hosted a roster of over 30 musicians! The final line-up found them as a trio with June Montana on vocals, later a one-hit wonder dance diva with whom they released their sole album with a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production. Among their hits were James Brown's "It's A Man's World" and the 1963 hit for Skeeter Davis, "The End Of The World".
