Kissing the Pink are a British new wave, dance and synth pop group from London, England. Members included Nick Whitecross, John Hall, George Stewart, Josephine Wells, Pete Barnett, Sylvia Griffin, Steve Cusack, and Simon Aldridge.
Their first single was “Don’t Hide in the Shadows”, made with Martin Hannett, but it was not until they dropped their first manager (celebrated in their song “Michael”), and signed with Magnet Records that they began to get any airplay. They recorded their first album in AIR Studios with producer Colin Thurston.
Kissing the Pink had wanted Brian Eno to produce the album but Magnet thought Thurston would make a more commercial impact. After a series of near-misses their single “The Last Film” reached the Top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. Their album, Naked, reached No. 54 in the UK Albums Chart.
Their first Billboard Hot 100 entry was “Maybe This Day,” which hit No. 87 in 1983. In 1985, following the departure by some of the members they shortened their name to KTP and began having hits on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
In 1986, KTP released “Never Too Late To Love You”, mixed and produced by Mixmaster Phil Harding.
