Everywhere you go there seems to be a classical re
working of everything from rave classics to DJ inspired anthems but few have
been done so well as this seismic piece of innovative thinking of
orchestral arrangements by Cutting Crew of their classics
including what we feel is cupids very own theme tune ‘ I just died in
your arms tonight’. The Grammy-nominated rock band were formed in England
in 1985 by ever-present singer and guitarist, Nick Van Eede with original
guitarist, writer and fellow-conspirator from Canada, Kevin MacMichael,
Literally within months, the band signed with Siren Records/Virgin on the
strength of their melody-rich demos alone.

Cutting Crew, becoming a foursome in 1986, entered the
studio the same year to record the multi-million selling debut Broadcast album,
one year before “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” exploded and made them
stars at home and in the USA where it hit the number one spot in the charts and
has so far garnered 5 million plays on the radio in that country alone!

It has since become something of a popular culture
icon, finding its way into films such as Hot Tub Time Machine; smash-hit TV
series as varied as Stranger Things and Ash Vs Evil Dead and video games such
as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. “I’ve Been in Love Before” and
“One for the Mockingbird” also enjoyed massive worldwide radio play,
reaching the Top 10 and Top 20 Billboard singles charts respectively and the
band began their love affair for touring with worldwide stops as opening act
for such groups as The Bangles, Starship and Huey Lewis & the News, as well
as their own sell-out headline shows.

Cutting Crew released an award-winning sophomore
album, The Scattering, in 1989 and a third in 1992, Compus Mentus. Sadly, after
the death of his friend and founder member Kevin, there was an obviously long
silence but Nick eventually chose to revive the band the following decade,
featuring a radically different line-up, releasing the edgy Grinning Souls
recorded in Kevin’s hometown in Nova Scotia in 2006 and the remarkable Add to
Favourites in 2015. Artist: Cutting
