NUTHIN' FANCY picture
Luke Morley and Danny Bowes first met at Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School in 1975. At the age of 14 Danny talked his way into a band Luke had formed with some other boys, he couldn't play an instrument so claimed to be a singer; the band auditioned him and he was deemed good enough to join.

The boy he replaced was pushed aside to become a bass player but by a twist of fate would one day become Thunder's manager. The band went on to call themselves Nuthin' Fancy.

In following years they played in pubs around the London area and released an independent single ‘Looking For A Good Time’.

When Harry James joined after the previous drummer left, the band renamed themselves Terraplane.

As Terraplane they played many gigs, including regular gigs at the Marquee Club, a performance at the 1982 Reading Festival, and got signed to Epic Records.

NUTHIN' FANCY Looking For A Good Time

Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Certif1ed
Before there was Thunder there was Terraplane, and before there was Terraplane there was Nuthin Fancy.

So, looking at the cover, I'm seeing a spanner and a couple of nuts. I thought there were 5 in the band?

Now you've finished laughing at my little joke, it's down to business with the music - really, what I'm getting at is that the cover doesn't hold much promise of NWoBHM goodness, especially at £210 - could I be wrong?

Er... no.

Don't get me wrong - it's good for what it is, but what it is is a kind of Boston meets Journey meets Whitesnake affair. Highly polished - and that's where it gets off on the wrong foot for my tastes. The vocals are extremely competent, like a cross between David Coverdale and Steve Perry, and the guitar whirls effortlessly through a set of standard hot licks.

There's nothing wrong with polished metal - but this just isn't metal. It's too effortless. Metal sounds like every last drop of sweat, including the reserves, is poured into each and every note, with the whole edifice threatening to fall apart at the seams every now and then, only to tighten up, like a balloon at bursting point.

And it is, contrary to the band's name, just a bit too fancy for me. Everything's very competent, each detail falling nicely into place in the vocals, bass, drums, guitars and keys - and that's just not right.

The bit I hate most is the white man's reggae section in the middle - very few bands could ever get away with such an atrocity, and, apart from the Scorpions and Here and Now, I'm struggling to think of any.

So I'm basically lambasting this single because there's nothing really wrong with it. I'm not even going to flip it over to see if the B side is any better...

Take that how you will - but I'd rather listen to Take That...
