Ellis, Beggs & Howard ‎– Bad Times (12″)

Not the most catchiest of group names!

Beggs, being Nick Beggs from Kajagoogoo. Simon Ellis (who went on to do stuff with the Spice Girls and writing for S Club 7!!!) and vocalist Austin Howard and this got released back in 1988.

Decent pop funk stuff with a rock edge, they only released the one LP, “Homelands” and had the hit, “Big Bubbles, No Troubles” which I’ll have to dig out for later. The quirky “One Tongue” is an entertaining B-side whilst “The Drunken Midnight Mix” of the main track is far superior to the long version.
