Discovered while busking in the streets of London, One the Juggler main-men Rokko (vocals/guitar) and Lushi (bass guitar) signed a deal with Regard Records (home of Haysi Fantayzee) and recruited second guitarist Lin Minchin and drummer Steve Nicol (sax player Ian Trimmer remained an unofficial member), releasing a slew of singles throughout 1983. Releasing their debut album, Nearly a Sin, in 1984, the band received initial interest from the British press, but it didn't translate into sales. By the release of their second album (produced by the legendary Mick Ronson), Some Strange Fashion, Minchin and Nicol were gone, leaving Rokko, Lushi, Trimmer, and Ronson to handle most of the duties. Within a year of its release, Rokko, Lushi, and Trimmer had split and One the Juggler were just a memory.
