The London based R&B outfit, Loose Ends, took America by storm in 1983 following the release of their first album A Little Spice and the #1 single "Hanging On A String (Contemplating)”. Soon to be followed by: "Slow Down" #1, "Watching You " #1, "You Can't Stop The Rain" #3, " Mr. Bachelor" #3. The group was formed when Royal College of Music alumni, Steve Nichol (who had just finished a world tour with the well-known British rock band The Jam) met singer/songwriter Jane Eugene at a South London party and happened to mention he was starting his own band. The two entered into collaboration, giving birth to their very first single, "In the Sky." With the goal of landing a recording contract, they began to rehearse as a live band along with a third member, Carl McIntosh. The chemistry between the three was instantaneous and they formed the group Loose Ends: Steve on keyboards, Jane on lead vocals, and Carl on bass and vocals. Hanging out at his local record store, Steve met Mick Clark. Mick would be instrumental in helping to send the trio on their way to international success. Mick had just secured a position in A&R at Virgin Records UK and told Steve to send him a demo. Soon after, Loose Ends signed a deal with Virgin UK, becoming the first R&B act signed by the label. Today, one would describe Loose Ends as a group with worldwide appeal. LOOSE ENDS: The Pioneers of Euro-Soul.
