Paper Lace


Paper Ribbons was a vintage one-hit wonder music group. In America, anyhow. Within the U.K. these were a vintage two-hit wonder. Created in 1969 in Nottingham, Britain, and comprised of Michael Vaughn, Chris Morris, Carlo Santanna, Cliff Seafood, and Phillip Wright, Paper Ribbons was among a huge selection of pop rings in England searching for the big style while slogging their method through small membership gigs and short television performances. Their big break emerged in 1974 when their edition from the tear-jerking bubblegum tune “Billy, AVOID BEING a Hero” gained best honors on Opportunity Knocks, a countrywide talent-show on ITV. They rode that tune completely to the very best from the U.K. graphs but had been aced away from any sales within the U.S. by Bo Donaldson & the Haywoods’ transcendent edition. Their next one,”THE NIGHT TIME Chicago Passed away,” did have the ability to hit the main slot in the U.S. graphs (number 3 within the U.K.) and which was it. The group released two albums, Paper Ribbons as well as other Bits of Materials in 1974 and First Editon in 1975, and do an instant fade from the general public eyesight. In 1978 they surfaced briefly using a singalong edition of “WE HAVE depends upon inside our Hands” making use of their regional football group, Nottingham Forest FC, as well as the disappeared forever.
