In 1986, the band Johnny Hates Jazz signed with Virgin records, and the following year released the single Shattered Dreams. In their native UK, the band had three more hits with I Don't Want To Be A Hero, Turn Back The Clock, and Heart of Gold, although to be honest, I only remember hearing Shattered Dreams in the US. Not long after this success, lead singer/songwriter Clark Datchler left original bandmates Calvin Hayes and Mike Nocito in 1988. He was replaced, oddly enough, by Phil Thomalley, a former bassist with The Cure [about as far away from JHJ as you could get]. The band seemed plagued with bad luck, as a month prior to the release of their second CD, there was a car accident leaving Hayes recovering for a year, which killed all momentum the band had gained. Soon they disbanded.
In 2007, Hayes and Nocito came back together, along with yet another lead vocalist, and hit the road, and they are still working. You can get the info here.
