Strange Kind Of Love
Formed in 1985 by James Grant and Paul McGeechan, both formerly of Scottish cult indie guitar band Friends Again , they joined forces with bassist Bobby Paterson and drummer Stuart Kerr to become Love and Money. They took on a more rock and soulful approach to music.Signing to Phonogram, they recorded their debut album Love And Money with production by Tom Dowd. This album gained an immediate following and set up the momentum for their follow up album.The band spent most of 1987 demoing this, their follow up album Strange Kind of Love . This was overseen by Steely Dan producer Gary Katz and following Kerr's departure, Toto's Jeff Porcaro standing in on drums. Receiving mass critical acclaim the album took them to a new level of success on both sides of the ocean with the album going platinum in the UK.The band went on to record two further albums and cult success before calling it a day in 1994. James Grant has since released a number of acclaimed solo albums, with his current album Strange Flowers being hismost upbeat album since Strange Kind of Love.

Keep Your Distance
A long overdue reissue of the 1987 #1 debut album by Curiosity Killed The Cat. It's an essential album for all collectors of 80's pop.

This 16 track CD, features the 9 tracks of the original album, 4 extended 12" mixes from the single releases that were included on a subsequent reissue of the album plus 3 bonus tracks to make this a very comprehensive collection of the band's most successful material. The album was a number 1 UK album in 1987 and remained on the charts for 24 weeks.
This collection features 4 hit singles including Down To Earth #3, Misfit #7, Ordinary Day #11 and Free #54. The 3 bonus tracks featured are b/sides Man, Corruption
(Dub) available on CD for the first time and Bullet.
A comprehensive booklet featuring sleeve notes and a full UK discography featuring many of their sleeves. Curiosity Killed The Cat fronted by the charismatic Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot enjoyed their first hit with Down To Earth in December of 1986. With their James Dean looks, vibrant
street energy and cutting edge soul pop sound it seemed for a while as if Curiosity Killed the Cat may have possessed, a perfect recipe for success in the late eighties pop market.

Initially the band were labelled as a boy band but this ignores the band's undoubted musical backbone and talent. Hit singles were to follow as were two successful albums, their musical and commercial high point being their debut album and the focus of this reissue Keep Your Distance.
