Biography


JoBoxers, a predominantly British pop group, was formed in 1982, when former Subway Sect members – guitarist Rob Marche, keyboardist Dave Collard, bassist Chris Bostock and drummer Sean McLusky – teamed up with American singer, Dig Wayne (born Timothy Wayne Ball, 20 July 1962, New York).

The band’s debut single, “Boxerbeat”, found success in Britain, peaking at number 3 in the UK Singles Chart. Their next hit “Just Got Lucky” also sold 250,000 copies and made the UK Top 10 and U.S. Top 40.


Subsequent singles, “Johnny Friendly” and “Jealous Love” did less well. JoBoxers’ debut album, Like Gangbusters, reached the Top 20 of the UK Albums Chart.

The band released another single “Is This Really The First Time” and a second album Skin and Bone in 1985, but then split up, with McLusky joining Marche and Paul Wells in the indie-dance band called If? and Bostock joining Dave Stewart’s post-Eurythmics group Dave Stewart & The Spiritual Cowboys.

“Just Got Lucky” was featured heavily in the films: The 40-Year-Old Virgin, starring Steve Carell and “Just My Luck” starring Lindsay Lohan.
