Fine Young Cannibals

Former members of Birmingham 2 Tone ska outfit The Beat, bassist David Steele and guitarist Andy Cox, formed this band in 1984 with newcomer singer Roland Gift completing the line-up.

The name was taken from the film All The Fine Young Cannibals (1960) which starred Natalie Wood and Robert Wagner.

FYC had two chart-topping singles in the US – She Drives Me Crazy (1989) and Good Thing (1989) – both from their The Raw and The Cooked album – with Gift’s falsetto the main selling point.
