10CC are coming to Panthers!
10CC is a British art-pop band formed in 1970. Hit songs include ‘Donna’, ‘I’m not in love’, ‘Dreadlock holiday’, ‘The things we do for love’ and so many more. 10CC recorded their 1972 hit song “Donna,” a sly satire of late-’50s doo wop. The single reached the number two position on the British charts, establishing not only a long-running string of major hits, but also the quartet’s fondness for ironic and affectionate reclamations of musty pop styles.
The follow-up, “Rubber Bullets,” topped the charts in 1973, and both the subsequent single “The Dean and I” (a nostalgic look at academia recalling Jerry Lee Lewis’ “High School Confidential”) and an eponymously titled debut LP further solidified 10cc as a major force in British pop. While 1974’s Sheet Music and singles, including the Brian Wilson-esque “Wall Street Shuffle,” “Silly Love” and “Life Is a Minestrone” continued 10cc’s dominance of the U.K. charts, they found the American market virtually impenetrable prior to the release of 1975’s “I’m Not in Love,” which topped the charts at home and climbed as high as number two in the States. After 1975’s Original Soundtrack and the next year’s How Dare You!
In the wake of a number of the band members departing, Gouldman and Stewart continued on alone, enlisting the aid of session men to record 1977’s Deceptive Bends, highlighted by the perennial “The Things We Do for Love. After recruiting guitarist Rick Fenn, keyboardist Tony O’Malley and drummer Stuart Tosh as fulltime members, 10CC returned in 1978 with Bloody Tourists, which yielded the number one reggae nod “Dreadlock Holiday.” With four decades of songwriting excellence and a crack band of musicians, 10CC is still going strong!
