Dead or Alive
Dead or Alive are a British New Wave band from Liverpool that rose to popularity during the 1980s, and evolved from late 1970s band Nightmares in Wax. They are best known for their #1 UK hit single, "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)", and gained continuous popularity.
Dead or Alive's singles started placing high in the UK Indie Chart, with 1982's "The Stranger" reaching number seven, and Epic Records took notice and signed the band in 1983. Their first release for Epic was the single "Misty Circles", which appeared at no 100 in the Gallup charts of week ending 4th June 1983. At this point, the band was a five-piece consisting of Burns, Mike Percy (bass), Tim Lever (keyboards/sax), Steve Coy (drums), and Wayne Hussey (guitar). Two more singles, "What I Want" and "I'd Do Anything", were club hits but mainstream success continued to elude the band.
