Loose Ends is a group which has existed since the early 80's. A successful British R&B band formed in 1980, signed to Virgin Records in 1981. Loose Ends had several urban contemporary hits with tracks such as “Hanging on a string” reaching no.1 in the U.S charts and no.13 in the U.K charts, also “Slow Down” reaching no.27 in the U.K charts and no.1 in the U.S charts. Loose Ends are the first British R&B band to have a no.1 gold selling Album in the U.S and going on to sell millions. The negative narrative that the group had broken up is untrue as they continued to make hits from 1988 onwards. Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol left the group so Carl McIntosh went on to produce the “Look How Long” album released in 1990, with the hit single “Don’t be a fool” reaching no.13 in the U.K charts and no.10 in the U.S charts.
