FGTH from Liverpool who contracted with ZTT released sensational "Relax" produced by Trevor Horn, formally in the Buggles. With the combination of strong marketing support such as T-shirts (I had the one, too) by Paul Morley in ZTT and the broadcasting ban of their video and song (If this is a part of their marketing strategy, they are so smart), it got the strong media attention and recorded over a million copies of sales. The second single "Two Tribes" also became a million seller. If I remember correctly, they appeared in the film "Body Double" by Brian De Palma". I personally like this movie. Unfortunately, they were one hit wonder (maybe three); however, they are the band representing the year of 1984. Relax! Don't do it! I want to see their video again.
