Good quality video, second performance from Phil Fearon as Galaxy on Top Of The Pops 1983. Phil Fearon (born 30 July 1956, London, England) is a British record producer. He was the lead singer, songwriter and keyboardist for the 1980s band Galaxy. Similar to the RAH Band, Galaxy was not a true group of musicians but a front for an individual producing all the music in a studio environment, with two female backing singers to supplement the recording sound (Dorothy Galdes & Julie Gore).[citation needed] Galaxy's best known hits were "Dancing Tight", "What Do I Do?" , "Everybody's Laughing" and "I Can Prove It", which were all up-beat commercial pop songs, hitting the Top Ten of the UK Singles Chart. Before forming Galaxy, Fearon was a member of the band Kandidate. Galaxy's records were distinctly early 1980s in style, with prominent use of keyboards and synthesizers, and his version of "Ain't Nothing but a House Party" was produced by Stock Aitken Waterman. Galaxy's popularity waned in the late '80s, with the trend moving towards acid house, though the later single, a cover version of The Showstoppers' "Ain't Nothin' But a Houseparty" was an early example of this genre. In 1987 Fearon founded and managed a very successful record label called Production House Records with Laurie Jago and Raj Malkani, moving away from performing to producing other acts. Phil returned to performing as a special surprise guest at the Caister Soul Weekender in May 2010, the crowd singing along to his eighties hits. He was the headline act at the 'Party In The Park' at Milton Keynes on September 4, 2010. Fearon is married to Dorothy "Dee" Galdes, the vocalist for the Baby D song "Let Me Be Your Fantasy". Their daughter Stephanie is an actress and singer who appeared on the CITV show My Parents Are Aliens and was later a contestant and semi-finalist on the 2010 BBC talent search Over the Rainbow.
