To cut a long story short, he found Mickey Most's house & presented the
bands tape to Mickey's wife.
The very next day a phone call was received
from Mickey Most requesting to see ‘Alive ‘n’ Kicking’ play live.
Three weeks later on a Saturday night, totally unannounced, Mickey
arrived on his motorbike with his wife at the Three Queens to watch
'Alive 'n' Kicking’ play; he was so impressed by the band, that he invited
them to his new recording studio in London to try out some songs
and the rest, my friends, is history.
The Band changed its name to ‘Racey’ & had the following successes :
1st Single ‘Baby it's You’ - No 64 in British charts
2nd Single ‘Lay your Love on Me’ - No 3 in British charts
No 1 in most European Countries, Australia & New Zealand.
3rd Single ‘Some Girls’ - reached No 2 in British charts
No 1 in most European Countries, Australia & New Zealand
When this single was released in Australia it knocked Racey's previous
No 1 hit single for 8 weeks ‘Lay your Love on Me’ from its top spot,
‘Some Girls’ then remained at No 1 for a further 6 weeks
‘Racey’ certainly dominated the Australian charts.
4th Single ‘Boy oh Boy’ - reached No 12 in the British charts
This single completed the 'hat trick' of Racey's success in Denmark
with 3 No 1 singles in a row.
Another big hit in Australia & New Zealand as well as across Europe.
5th single ‘Runaround Sue’ - No 13 in British charts & Europe.
