Love and Money is a rock/soul/funk band formed in 1985 in Glasgow, Scotland. The band was formed by three former members of Friends Again (singer-songwriter and guitarist James Grant, drummer Stuart Kerr and keyboardist Paul McGeechan) along with bassist Bobby Paterson, who replaced Friends Again’s Neil Cunningham and who had been a member of Set The Tone, a band previously signed to Island Records in 1983.
Signing to Phonogram’s Mercury Records in the United Kingdom, they recorded “Candybar Express” with production from Duran Duran’s Andy Taylor, and this recording became their first hit receiving considerable airplay in the U.S. and reaching number 56 in the UK Singles Chart in the spring of 1986.
The track was remixed by Shep Pettibone and initially released on 12″ single, the Shep remix would reappear on both the “River Of People” (1987) and “Jocelyn Square” (1989) singles but the Dub Mix would remain released on the US Mercury 12″ only.
