KajagoogooLyrics Too Shy

The band was founded as “Art Nouveau” in the year 1979. The line up at this time included bassist Nick Beggs, guitarist Steve Askew, keyboardist Stuart Croxford Neale, and drummer Jez Strode. In 1981, they would audition lead singers, finally selecting Christopher Hamill.

The band attracted the interest of three major record labels (as well as Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes) while performing at the Embassy Club in London, England in the first half of the ‘80s. The group was eventually signed to the EMI label in July of 1982, and Rhodes was signed to produce their first album, White Feathers.

In between, Kajagoogoo supported the New Romantic act Fashion on tour. Kajagoogoo’s debut single, "Too Shy" was released in January of 1983 and eventually made it to the top of the charts. Follow up singles, including "Ooh to Be Aah" and "Hang on Now,” would make it to the top twenty as well.

The albums of Kajagoogoo include White Feathers, Islands, Crazy People’s Right to Speak, Too Shy: The Singles and More, The Best of Kajagoogoo & Limahl, The Very Best of Kajagoogoo, and Very Best of Kajagoogoo.
