Keith Marshall - Only Crying 1981

4y ago


Good quality rare video, recorded from Top Of The Pops 1981. Keith Marshall (born 5 June 1956, Hampstead, northwest London) - guitarist / vocalist. He came from a band called "Hello" Can't find anything much else about Keith so here's a bit I have found on the Band. Hello is a Bell Records label, teen appeal glam rock band, based in England The core of Hello was founded in about 1969, originally being called The Age. The band was started by Bob Bradbury, previously of The Flashback Berries, with Jeff Allen (brother of Chris Allen, alias Chris Cross of Ultravox), Keith Marshall and Vic Faulkner. For about a year, they backed singer Caroline Hall, before renaming themselves as Hello in 1971. Their biggest success came in the UK and Germany in the mid 1970s. Their Top 10 hits in the UK Singles Chart were "Tell Him" (a cover of The Exciters 1963 hit) and "New York Groove", the latter of which was written by Argent band member Russ Ballard. "New York Groove" was later covered to provide a solo Billboard Hot 100 chart hit in the U.S., for the rock guitarist Ace Frehley of the band Kiss. They were recruited to Australian comedian Barry Humphries' Side by Side movie, appearing alongside Mud, The Rubettes, and Stephanie de Sykes; the Side by Side soundtrack features reprises of "Game's Up" and "Bend Me Shape Me," alongside hit offerings from Fox, Disco-Tex and the Sex-O-Lettes, Billy Ocean, and Gary Glitter. Their debut album, Keeps Us Off the Streets, was released, wrapped in a mock denim cover and the band's next single, Ballard's "Star Studded Sham", brought them another German Top 20 hit, on the heels of a sell-out tour with Smokie. However by 1979, with no recording contract, the band split up, with former guitarist Keith Marshall releasing a solo effort, "Only Crying", in 1981. It found a place in record charts worldwide. On 22 October 1999, Bob Bradbury appeared on the Identity Parade on the BBC Television programme, Never Mind the Buzzcocks. According to the band's official website, in 2002 their original lead singer and rhythm guitarist Bradbury, reformed the band with him as the sole remaining founding member.
