Fiction Factory

Starting life in a different guise as ska outfit The Rude Boys, reconfigured Scottish sextet Fiction Factory tasted overnight success when their debut single, (Feels Like) Heaven, peaked at #6 in January 1984.

Curiously, though, while the song’s melancholic appeal and singer Kevin Patterson’s chiselled good looks fitted the charts like a glove, follow-up single Ghost Of Love barely scraped the Top 75, rapidly curtailing Fiction Factory’s brief run-in with fame.

The Perth boys’ debut LP, Throw The Warped Wheel Out, also failed to chart, despite an expansive production.

Their inability to create anything quite as drop-dead gorgeous as (Feels Like) Heaven ultimately killed their chances (and their career) stone dead.
