This predominantly female ska band earned themselves a string of UK hit singles within the mid-80s. The music group comprised Annie Ruddock (b. Ann-Marie Teresa Antoinette Ruddock, 2 July 1961; lead vocals), Claire Kenny (bass), Lesley Seaside (b. 30 Sept 1954; saxophone), Sharon Bailey (b. 22 November 1957; percussion) and Margo Sagov (acoustic guitar), in addition to the lone male of the group, Nardo Bailey (drums). They produced their initial effect on the lower parts of the UK solitary graphs with ‘Cairo’, but accomplished greater achievement in July 1985 with ‘Excitable’, which reached the united kingdom Best 20. This achievement was accompanied by additional strikes, including; ‘Don’t YOU MERELY Understand It’, ‘As well Good TO BECOME Overlooked’ (#5 5) and ‘Montego Bay’. Their recording premiered on Island Information in 1986. After an acrimonious break-up, Ruddock, Sharon Bailey and Seaside briefly performed on as Amazulu II. Claire Kenny later on joined the original line-up of APPROACHING Roses and consequently became a program participant for Shakespear’s Sister and Sinéadvertisement O’Connor.
