Biography

Taking their name from a local furniture shop, Watts and Thorn first performed together at Hull University where they were students. They went their separate ways after college - Thorn as a member of the band Marine Girls and Watts as a solo artist - but in 1982 the duo made their recording debut together under the Everything But The Girl moniker on a cover of Cole Porter's Night And Day. They eventually gave up their individual projects to form Everything But the Girl (EBTG) and released debut album Eden in 1984. The duo demonstrated versatility across music genres with studio albums Love Not Money in 1985, Baby The Stars Shine Bright in 1986, 1989's Idlewild featuring the UK Number 3 single I Don't Want To Talk About It, Language Of Life in 1990 and Worldwide in 1991. However, in 1992 Watts contracted Churg-Strauss syndrome - which nearly killed him -and the duo put their work on hold until 1994 when they returned with seventh album Amplified Heart. A year later US DJ Todd Terry's remix of album track Missing became a global hit, altering the duo's musical direction. The band released their most successful album, Walking Wounded, to date in 1996, and 1999's Temperamental played further on the dance theme. In 2000 Thorn took a step back from the music scene, while Watts developed his career as a DJ/producer.
