KAJAGOOGOO "HANG ON NOW" (1983)

"Hang On Now" was the third single release from Kajagoogoo's debut album White Feathers, and reached #13 in the UK and #78 in the U.S. The song was written by band members Nick Beggs and Limahl, and the imaginative video is partly animated.
The single was a moderate hit, and spent a total of nine weeks in the UK singles chart. It entered the chart at No.39 on 29th May 1983, making it the fourth highest new entry that week, and climbed to a peak position of No.13 on 12th June for one week.
The track featured as the third song on side 2 of the White Feathers album.

Kajagoogoo were a band who fully embraced the fashion and hairstyles of the 80s, but there was much more to these guys than just their style. They were accomplished musicians, and you can really hear the quality of their music on the White Feathers album. The Nick Rhodes production adds lavishness, and the bass line on many of these songs is simply mouth-watering. 

I just hope that this band are remembered for their songs, and not just for their big hair.
