Andy Bell & David Clarke

Musical group


Erasure were formed in 1985 after Andy answered an ad placed by Vince in UK music paper "Melody Maker". Andy was the 42nd person to audition. After a slow start - their first 3 singles Who Needs Love (Like That), Heavenly Action and Oh L'Amour only reached numbers 55, 100 and 85 respectively! Erasure had their first hit with Sometimes, which reached number 2 in the UK chart in late 1986.

Since then, they have had 16 top 10 singles (including one number 1, their ABBA covers EP "ABBA-Esque" in 1992) and 5 number 1 albums. So far in 2003 they have had another Top 10 with their cover of Solsbury Hill, and released a cover-versions album Other People's Songs. They have also completed their first tour for 6 years, "The Other Tour", performing shows in the UK, North America, Germany and Denmark.
