The origins of the band date back to '70s punk band Johnny & The Self-Abusers', who split up upon the release of their
first single. Singer Jim Kerr and bandmates Tony Donald, Charlie Burchill and Brian McGee broke away to create a new outfit
in 1977, taking their name from the David Bowie song 'Jean Genie'. With a constantly evolving line-up, the boys set about
recording demos and eventually pulled together material for their 1979 debut album Life in a Day. Experimenting with
different styles and sounds over their next few album releases, it wasn't until the release of their sixth LP Sparkle in
the Rain in 1984 that the boys scored their first Number One in the UK album chart. 'Don't You (Forget About Me)', the
soundtrack to cult '80s film The Breakfast Club, became the song the band were best known for at the peak of their
stardom, helping to propel them to global record sales of 60 million. Having maintained this strong fanbase around the world,
their fourteenth studio album Black and White 050505, was released in 2005 to critical acclaim and went Gold.
