Piano and Voice...




Not much interesting information about Hue And Cry other than the fact that it's a Scottish duo formed in 1983 in Coatbridge by brothers Pat and Greg Kane.


Duo that will remain mainly in the musical history of the end of the 20th century for the big-caliber single "Labor of love", single released in 1987.


For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1986 ... the tone is trendy, as is the style. But that is not enough for the moment to distinguish them from the mass. They will have to work again and again ...



1986 ... a job that is finally starting to pay off with this title. This time will be the good one and the group is finally starting to reap the first fruits of its efforts ...



1987 ... from the 2nd year of existence, it's the jackpot ! The group will land here the biggest success of its entire career and enter One Shot in the musical Pantheon of the 80s. HU-GE !



1987 ... a year 1987 which will undoubtedly remain as their best vintage with this new major success in the wake. In just 2 years, the duo will have become one of the phenomena of the moment across the Channel ...



1988 ... even if the success is undeniable across the Channel and in part of Europe, it will not go beyond the Old Continent anyway. Success therefore necessarily limited ...



1989 ... the adventure continues to be beautiful across the Channel and the influence of the group is now exclusively concentrated there. It's already that as they say !



1989 ... their atypical style was as much their strength as their weakness. A trendy style while being a little offbeat. Astonishing paradox ...



1989 ... only the English will have been able to produce this style where jazzy, funky and new-wave influences mix. Another particularity of the 1980s ...



1991 ... after an empty year 1990, here they are again in this year 1991 in a certain form. Certain, of course, but still not sufficient to land a first global hit ...



1991 ... here they are in quasi-Country mode, a daring bet and above all a bet that unfortunately will not pay more than that. Attention danger...



1994 ... after 3 years where not much interesting will happen, the duo are back in finesse and lightness mode. A style that they weren't really used to and that they should have borrowed a little more often, that's clear ...



1994 ... unfortunately, their refusal to evolve more than that in terms of style will marginalize them irremediably from the mid-1990s. Frankly, too bad ...



1996 ... one imagines that with such a style, it will be impossible for them to position themselves correctly during this ultra-dance and ultra-fast decade on the tempo side. The beginning of the end...



2008 ... twelve years will separate this title from the previous one. We thought the case was definitely over but here they are reborn from their ashes at the end of the 2000s. To do what, that's a good question ...



2009 ... to come back to do almost the same thing as 10 years ago, one really wonders what could work more today than during the decade 90. Same causes, same effects with a level of success at sadly flushed with daisies ...



2012 ... they will even attempt the transition to the 2010 decade. Bet lost in advance because they still have not changed a style that is seriously starting to date. This time, it is indeed the exit door that will be the next step ...



2017 ... with them, you have to know that nothing is ever over. Here they are again when everything seemed folded at first glance. A desire to believe in it always and again, to say the least, surprising ...



2017 ... we therefore suspect that this title will not be the last once again. There is a very good chance that the 2 brothers will be found in the next decade. To be continued ...
