Love and Money In-depth Biography

Love and money were two things that eluded the Scottish band Love and Money}. After splitting from his backseat role in Friends Again} in 1984, James Grant} (vocals, guitar) formed Love and Money} in 1985 as an outlet for his developing songwriting skills. Love and Money} released the single "Candybar Express"} in 1986, receiving airplay on U.S. new wave} radio stations with its mix of jazz}, soul}, and funk}. However, the group's debut album, All You Need Is...}, was virtually ignored. In 1988, Grant} ventured further into his R&B} influences on Love and Money}'s second LP, Strange Kind of Love}. Grant}'s bluesy} croon and introspective lyrics stood in contrast to his group's upbeat funk}, and the unique combination landed on college radio. Nevertheless, even after months of touring and widespread critical praise, Love and Money} still couldn't find an audience. Frustrations with their record label Phonogram} led to Love and Money}'s downcast mood on 1991's Dogs in the Traffic}. Grant} dumped Love and Money}'s danceable rhythms on the album, instead veering into blues} and country}. Phonogram} dropped the group before the release of 1993's country}-flavored littledeath}; the band was picked up by Iona} in the U.K. and Mesa}/Bluemoon} in the U.S. littledeath} was Love and Money}'s final breath; they broke up in 1994. Grant} pursued a solo career while Paul McGeechan} (keyboards) and Douglas MacIntyre} (guitars, backing vocals) joined Sugartown} with ex-Hipsway} vocalist Graham "Skins" Skinner}. ~ Michael Sutton, All Music Guide
