In the early '80s, after the dissolution of Rockpile, Nick Lowe formed a new band along similar lines, with the same idea that the same group of musicians would play on each other's albums. The idea didn't last long, but the core trio (Lowe on bass, ex-Rumour Martin Belmont on guitar and Paul Carrack on keyboards) did manage one minor hit in 1982, with Carrack's single "I Need You." Starting with a familiar bass pulse shamelessly copped from the Temptations' "My Girl," "I Need You" is a lovely blue-eyed soul ballad perfect for Carrack's warm and slightly rough-around-the-edges voice. Belmont and Lowe provide some stellar "sha-la-la" harmonies throughout as well, but Carrack's voice and organ are at the forefront throughout. "I Need You" sounds like the follow-up single to "Tempted" that Squeeze could never quite manage.
