Ouch! : Life Goes On

  • Release date: 1-Jan-1993
  • Label: Sony Records

The band’s first album Life Goes On was recorded in 1992 for independent label Cavell Records. Two tracks, I Need You More and World Of Fantasy, were, to the band’s great excitement, put to tape at Abbey Road, extremely appropriate as the material is heavily reminiscent of the 60s and The Beatles in particular.

Although the band were truly honoured to be recording in the spiritual home of their biggest heroes, they were not the greatest admirers of tradition during their time as temporary tenants. Their antics ensured that Ouch! are unlikely to be welcomed back there with open arms, even 21 years on!

The album was not released in the UK until 1993, by which time Cavell were virtually bankrupt. But in Japan the album was backed by Sony and there its release spawned two number one singles and a successful tour in 1994.
