Nick Heyward

By 24th November 2017

When Haircut 100 burst energetically onto the pop scene in 1980 with their bright and innovative sound, Nick Heyward was the boy that every girl wanted to see.

Haircut 100 became as well-known for the preppie outfits they wore as much as MTV bubblegum like Love Plus One and Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl), two of the most endearing songs of the í80s. Both singles hit the Top Ten in Britain in 1982. Other hits included Fantastic Day, Nobodyís Fool and Prime Time.

Nick Heyward (vocals, guitar) left Haircut 100 just when they were cruising through the pop charts in the U.K. Instead of destroying his career, the move actually provided him with more artistic credibility. Once on his own, Heywardís work lost much of Haircut 100ís teen gloss; the music was still catchy, but the lyrics were more adult and introspective, as displayed on tracks like Whistle Down the Wind from his 1983 solo debut North of a Miracle. Other tracks from Nickís solo days included Take That Situation, Warning Sign and Blue Hat for a Blue Day. In 1994, the Beatles-like Kite on From Monday to Sunday was a smash hit on American modern rock stations.

Hearing his music on the radio still makes the sun shine so, when Nick takes the stage at Lets Rock Scotland! prepare to be up-lifted.
