 #18JUN 1983

JIMMY THE HOOVER WERE A BRITISH POP BAND FORMED IN 1982

THEIR MANAGER MALCOLM MCLAREN CHOSE THEIR NAME AND GAVE THEM A SUPPORT SLOT ON A BOW WOW WOW TOUR.

IN 1983 THEY SIGNED TO CBS SUBSIDIARY INNERVISION, AND THE SAME YEAR THEY HAD THEIR ONLY HIT, “TANTALISE (WO WO EE YEH YEH)”.

IT WOULD BE THEIR ONLY HIT, REACHING NUMBER 18 IN THE UK SINGLES CHART IN JUNE 1983.

MUSIC DIARY

1958, FAN’S OF ROCK & ROLL MUSIC WERE WARNED THAT TUNING INTO MUSIC ON THE CAR RADIO COULD COST YOU MORE MONEY. RESEARCHERS FROM THE ESSO GAS COMPANY SAID THE RHYTHM OF ROCK & ROLL COULD CAUSE THE DRIVER TO BE FOOT HEAVY ON THE PEDAL, MAKING THEM WASTE FUEL.

1968, CASS ELLIOT RELEASED HER FIRST SOLO SINGLE FOLLOWING THE BREAK UP OF THE MAMAS AND PAPAS. ‘DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME’ HAD BEEN AROUND SINCE 1931 AND HAD BEEN RECORDED BY FRANK SINATRA, FRANKIE LAINE AND MANY OTHERS. CASS’ VERSION WOULD BE THE MOST SUCCESSFUL

1976, BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SUED HIS MANAGER MIKE APPEL FOR FRAUD AND BREACH OF TRUST. THE CASE DRAGGED ON FOR OVER A YEAR, HALTING SPRINGSTEEN’S CAREER. AN OUT OF COURT SETTLEMENT WAS REACHED THE FOLLOWING YEAR.

1992, MICHAEL JACKSON SUED THE BRITISH PAPER THE DAILY MIRROR OVER PHOTOS AND AN ARTICLE THAT SAID HE WAS LEFT A “SCAR FACE” FROM NUMEROUS PLASTIC SURGERIES. THE SUIT WAS LATER SETTLED OUT OF COURT.

1996, THE SPICE GIRLS SCORED THEIR FIRST NO.1 UK SINGLE WITH ‘WANNABE’. SEVEN WEEKS AT NO.1 THE SONG WON BEST BRITISH-WRITTEN SINGLE AT THE 1997 IVOR NOVELLO AWARDS AND BEST SINGLE AT THE 1997 BRIT AWARDS. THE GIRL POWER SONG BECAME THE BEST-SELLING SINGLE BY A FEMALE GROUP SELLING OVER SIX MILLION COPIES WORLDWIDE.

2002, MARIAH CAREY CHECKED HERSELF INTO AN UNDISCLOSED HOSPITAL SUFFERING FROM “EXTREME EXHAUSTION.” THE SINGER CANCELLED ALL PUBLIC APPEARANCES, INCLUDING HER HEADLINING APPEARANCE AT MTV’S 20TH BIRTHDAY PARTY. HER RECORD COMPANY DENIED TABLOID REPORTS THAT CAREY TRIED TO COMMIT SUICIDE, SAYING SHE DID HAVE CUTS ON HER BODY, BUT THE INJURIES WERE UNINTENTIONAL AFTER BREAKING SOME DISHES AND GLASSES.
