This UK band was formed in 1978 by former Damned members Jon Moss (b. 11 September 1957, London, England; drums) and guitarist Lu Edmunds. They were joined by bass player Glyn Havard and pianist Gavin Povey. Although they gigged extensively and undertook studio work, backing Kirsty MacColl on the single ‘They Don’t Know’ and touring as Jane Aire And The Belvederes, their own work was largely ignored. They issued three singles (‘Macho Man’, ‘Downhill’ and ‘Watching You’) during the late 70s, and issued the album Square 1 in 1980 before disbanding. Moss went on to join Culture Club, while Edmunds teamed up with Athletico Spizz 80 and later the Mekons. The remaining members returned to session work.
