About ABC (band) in brief
ABC are an English pop band that formed in Sheffield in 1980. Developed from an earlier band, Vice Versa, ABC achieved ten UK and five US Top 40 hit singles between 1981 and 1990. Their 1982 debut album, The Lexicon of Love, was a UK number one. Their early 1980s success in the US saw them associated with the Second British Invasion. Now essentially a solo project for Martin Fry, ABC continues to tour and released a ninth studio album in 2016. The band’s chart success dwindled further in the UK with their album How to Be a… Zillionaire!, but they did score their first US Top 30 hit with \”Be Near Me\”, which also made the UK Top 30. After a hiatus during which Fry was treated for lymphoma, he and Mark White reconvened as a duo and released the album The Blue Blue Blue. The album also featured the singles \”Vanity Kills and Blue Ocean Blue\”. Inspiration for the album’s cartoons of the band members was taken from a photo shoot by David Levine whose work featured on many of the sleeves for this album.
