10cc are an English art rock and pop band. Initially comprising four musicians - Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley and Lol Creme - who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the “10cc” name in 1972 - two strong song-writing teams, injected sharp wit to lyrically-dextrous songs.
Stewart and Gouldman were straight pop-song-writers, who created the bandâ€™s most accessible songs; Godley and Creme were the experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic writing. All are skilled multi-instrumentalists, vocalists, writers, and producers, and each could perform convincingly as lead singers, leading to favourable comparisons with The Beatles.
The band achieved its greatest commercial success during the 1970s. In 1976 … Godley & Creme left, releasing records under that name before making a significant contribution to the development of the music video in the 80s.
In 1977 … 10cc embarked on an international tour with guitarist Rick Fenn, keyboardist Tony O’Malley and additional drummer Stuart Tosh and recorded a live album in 1977, “Live And Let Live”, which mixed the hits with material from the previous three albums.
Fenn, Tosh, Burgess and keyboardist Duncan Mackay were full members of the band and performed on 1978 album “Bloody Tourists”, which provided the band with their third UK No.1 single, the reggae-styled “Dreadlock Holiday”. Read more about 10CC
