The album ‘Go West’ sold 2 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks
This established Go West as one of the finest song-writing partnerships to emerge in the 80s Peter Cox and Richard Drummie first met in 1974. They signed as songwriters with ATV Music in 1982 and as recording artists, Go West, with Chrysalis Records two years later. Their debut single ‘We Close Our Eyes’ reached number 5 in the UK charts and became a top 10 hit in the USA. This ‘overnight’ success was followed by three further UK top 10 hits – ‘Call Me’, ‘Goodbye Girl’ and ‘Don’t Look Down’. In 1986 they won the BRIT Award for ‘Best British Newcomer’. Six albums and 20 million sales later, Go West are stronger than ever. They have enjoyed numerous chart singles worldwide, notably ‘King Of Wishful Thinking’, the opening song in the extremely successful film ‘Pretty Woman’. Go West have played live around the world continuously since their inception, and saw out 2016 with a hugely successful UK tour with 80s contemporaries Nik Kershaw and T’Pau, playing to 32 packed houses. They have certainly earned their reputation as an outstanding, exciting live act.
