This British songwriting duo comprised Dominic Bugatti and Frank Musker. The pair never actually performed live and only contributed vocals to their records, and preferred to take a Quincy Jones approach to their output - by producing, writing and arranging the material and letting the main vocals and music be performed by the cream of the session world. They made their name by writing many Top 20 hits including ‘Modern Girl’ for Sheena Easton, and ‘Woman In Love’ and ‘My Simple Heart’ for the Three Degrees. In 1982, they released an album of their songs under the pseudonym of the Dukes which, aimed at the disco party market, made little impact. They have continued to write but have not enjoyed the run of success achieved during the early 80s.
