Biography

The roots of British pop-soul combo JoBoxers lie in the final incarnation of Subway Sect, the backing band of punk-era singer Vic Godard. Clad in second-hand, street-urchin clothes, JoBoxers made their debut on the BBC television program Oxford Roadshow, signed to RCA records in 1983. Their debut single Boxer Beat cracked the UK Top Five, and its follow-up, Just Got Lucky, reached the Top Ten as well.Subsequent singles did less well.In the wake of the LP Like Gangbusters the group's commercial appeal dwindled, and upon releasing their 1985 effort Skin and Bone, JoBoxers disbanded.
