Fine Young Cannibals – Ever Fallen In Love? (1987)

Fine Young Cannibals were a British band formed in Birmingham, England, in 1984 after the dissolution of The Beat, with whom bassist Andy Cox and guitarist David Steele previously played.The duo of Steel and Cox spent eight months listening to over 500 cassettes of potential singers before settling on Roland Gift (formerly of the Akrylykz) . They had difficulty obtaining a record contract but when a video of their song “Johnny Come Home” appeared on a British TV show called “The Tube,” recording contract offers flowed in immediately.  The band’s eponymous debut album was released in 1985, spawning two UK hit singles, “Johnny Come Home” and a cover of Elvis Presley’s “Suspicious Minds” featuring additional vocals by Jimmy Somerville.

Their name came from the 1960 film All the Fine Young Cannibals starring Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood.

In 1987, the band recorded this cover of the Busscocks “Ever Fallen In Love ?” for the Something Wild soundtrack and it was later included on the band’s album The Raw and the Cooked.

The 12″ single release contained remixes by Arthur Baker.
