Formed in London in 1980, this all-female pop trio comprised Keren Woodward, Sarah Dallin and Siobhan Fahey. After singing at various parties and pubs in London, the group were recorded by former Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook on the Swahili Black Blood cover version, "Ai A Mwana". The single caught the attention of Fun Boy Three vocalist Terry Hall, who invited the girls to back his trio on their revival of "It Ain"t What You Do, It's The Way That You Do It'. One of their high points was the clever and appealing "Robert De Niro's Waiting", which justly reached the Top 3 in the UK. A lean period followed before the girls teamed up with the Stock, Aitken And Waterman production team for a remake of Shocking Blue's "Venus", which brought them a number 1 in the USA. Their biggest UK hit followed with the exceptional "Love In The First Degree", which proved to be their finest pop moment. In early 1988 Fahey left the group, married the Eurythmics' David A. Stewart and subsequently formed Shakespears Sister. Her replacement was Jacqui Sullivan, an old friend whose image fitted in reasonably well. During the early 90s, the hits continued making Bananarama the most consistent and successful British female group in pop history. The last chart entry before the band dissolved in 1993 was "Last Thing On My Mind" in November 1992.
