Pepsi & Shirlie


Former backing singers to WHAM!, PEPSI & SHIRLIE embarked on a solo career after that group’s break-up in Summer 1986. This connection was put to great use in the UK teenage magazine market where their pop/dance style appealed to suburban audiences.

Signing to Polydor Records, in 1987 the duo came out with a debut album ‘All Right Now’ and achieved two UK top 10 singles in 1987 with ‘Heartache’ (a number 2 hit) and ‘Goodbye Stranger’. Later singles – ‘All Right Now’ and ‘Can’t Give Me Love’ fared less well… (‘Heartache’ also placed within the top 10 best selling maxi singles according to Billboard Magazine for 1987)
