    In depth history….

    Mark Shaw formed the band at the age of 21, recruiting bassist Jasper Stainthorpe and drummer Steve Wren and poaching guitarist Scott Taylor from Belouis Some.

    The band played The Limelight Club in NYC in 1983 and signed to London Records in 1984. The single”The Big Sweep” was recorded for London but they objected to the lyrical subject matter (an anti-Robert Maxwell/Rupert Murdoch statement). It was initially released by the track’s producer Martin Rushent on his own Immaculate label in 1985 and then, subsequently, as a limited edition by London Records along with the new song, “Fault“, both of which attracted attention in the clubs.

    A handful of subsequent singles and a growing live following continued to raise Then Jerico’s profile and the band’s first real chart success came in early 1987 with the song “Muscle Deep”. “The Motive” followed that single into the Top 40. They enjoyed success with two albums, First (The Sound Of Music) (1987) co-produced by Mark Shaw and Owen Davies, which reached number 35 in the UK Albums Chart, followed by The Big Area in 1989 that went gold and reached number 4 in the UK Albums Chart.  Producer Rick Nowels took care of about more than half of the tracks on that album which also lead to the appearances of Belinda as side vocals on the single “What Does It Take“.

    The single “Big Area” was produced by Gary Langan (who was also a member of Art of Noise), and preceded the album The Big Area selling 35,000 pre-release copies. It played throughout Europe. The album itself featured several producers including Shaw.

    “Big Area” was the greatest success the group would have, peaking at number 13 in the UK Singles Chart. It was featured in the 1989 science fiction film, Slipstream (starring Mark Hamill), and was used by Irish national broadcaster RTE as the theme music for its televised golf programming throughout the 1990s. The hit singles “Big Area” / “Sugar Box” and “What Does It Take” (ft. Belinda Carlisle) are the best known songs from the album.
