10cc

Biography

An art rock supergroup of sorts, 10cc were major stars in 1970s England, best known in the States for their 1975 soft rock masterpiece "I'm Not In Love." Originally formed as Hotlegs, they released the surprise hit single "Neanderthal Man" in 1970. A year later Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman (of Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders) and Kevin Godley and Lol Crème (hot shot session guys) configured as 10cc and released a chart-topping, extremely playful take on doo-wop called "Donna." A string of similarly styled explorations of odd pop forms marked at times by bizarre vocal techniques was followed by their explorations in super artsy production. Godley and Crème left the group in 1976, to work as a duo and to pursue high profile production work. After their defection, Stewart and Gouldman scored two more hits, 1977's "The Things We Do For Love" and 1978's "Dreadlock Holiday."
