Geoffrey Deane and David Jaymes formed Modern Romance from the ashes of punk
band The Leyton Buzzards, in 1981.
After two flop singles, Andy Kyriacou joined the band . He was fortunate enough to have joined only 8 weeks before the band charted with their first hit record ,
"Everybody Salsa". This was followed up with "Ay Ay Ay Ay Moosey" which made the top ten singles chart in the UK, soon to be followed by
"Nothing Ever Goes The Way You Plan".
The second part of this song was remixed , renamed , and released as a single, reaching
No.2 on the U.S. Billboard dance charts as "Can You Move".
After another hit with "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" the band saw their highest UK chart position, with "Best Years Of Our Lives."
Three more hits followed, in 1983 . "High Life" was first, followed by
"Don't Stop That Crazy Rhythm" and their last chart hit, the beautiful ballad ,
"Walking In The Rain". Shortly after, the band broke up.
In 2001 Andy Kyriacou reformed the band , joining the burgeoning '80's revival scene and whilst being the only original member, has put together a line-up of top flight musicians , to make Modern Romance the perfect '80's band for the 21st Century .
