GODFATHERS Of POP

Justin Currie formed Del Amitri while still at school in Glasgow.

The band signed to Chrysalis and released their eponymous debut album in 1985 but it was not until a switch to A&M at the end of the decade that they achieved their commercial breakthrough with second album Waking Hours and radio hit, Nothing Ever Happens, which reached No.11 in 1990. Further success followed with Kiss This Thing Goodbye, Always The Last To Know and Roll To Me, their biggest US hit. The band went on hiatus in 2002. Since then, Currie has released four solo albums, beginning with What Is Love For. Del Amitri reformed for a tour in 2014.
