B-Movie were a futurist band from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England, active in the first half of the 1980s. They were signed to the Some Bizzare record label, and had a track “Moles” featured on the original Some Bizzare Album.
In 1982, they released “Nowhere Girl”, which made the Top 10 in many European countries and reached No. 68 in the United Kingdom,but there was no follow-up and no sign of an album. The popular webcomic Nowhere Girl was named after this single.
Keyboard player Rick Holliday left in 1983 to form Six Sed Red with Soft Cell associate Cindy Ecstasy. Paul Statham switched from guitar to keyboards and was briefly replaced by Stuart McLean (Charming Snakes) for a tour of Israel. Their biggest success was having their song “Dream Baby” covered by Bananarama on their eponymous 1984 LP. The rest of the band re-surfaced in 1984 (with Adi Hardy on guitar) with the single “A Letter From Afar” produced by John “Jellybean” Benitez but this failed to chart.
