The duo began writing and performing songs together in 1972, having been friends since the early Sixties.

Their breakthrough single was Gertcha which peaked at No. 20 in 1979, and was the first of eight Top 40 hit singles for the cockney duo.

Best known for their tracks Rabbit, Ain’ No Pleasing You and Margate, they also had nine best-selling albums.
