Kane Gang

Biography

British soul/funk trio the Kane Gang formed in 1982 in the north of England.. Vocalists Martin Brammer and Paul Woods and multi-instrumentalist Dave Brewis met through several area bands; along with local acquaintances Prefab Sprout, they were signed to the local Kitchenware label, which led London Records to sign the Kane Gang in 1984. Their debut album, The Bad and Lowdown World of the Kane Gang (released in the U.S. as simply Lowdown), was released in 1985 and spawned several minor U.K. hit singles, including the Top 20 "Closest Thing to Heaven." 1987's slicker Miracle sported several more minor hits, including "Motortown."
