MODERN ROMANCE

Information

David Jaymes co-formed Modern Romance from the ashes of punk band The Leyton Buzzards, in 1981.
After two flop singles, Andy Kyriacou joined the band and within 8 weeks of joining, had greatly influenced the success of the 3rd single , "Everybody Salsa" by incorporating new PR ideas, which in turn helped the song to become the band's first hit. The song was later rebranded, remixed and released as a single, reaching number 2 in the U.S.Billboard dance charts as "Can You Move."
This was followed up with "Ay AY Ay Ay Moosey" which made the top ten single chart in the U.K., soon to be followed by "Nothing Ever Goes The Way You Plan. " After another hit with "Cherry Pink And Apple Blossom White " the band saw their highest U.K.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 the their last chart hit the beautiful ballad, "Walking In The Rain."

Andy revived the band in 1999 and has made Modern Romance the perfect 80's band for the 21st Century and a success on the very popular 80's music scene.
