S-S-S-Single bed - Fox

The British band Fox formed in 1974, with members Noosha Fox, Kenny Young, Herbie Armstrong, Jim Gannon, Pete Solley, Gary Taylor and Jim Frank. The band had a lot of success with their self-titled debut album, which was released in 1975 and featured the distinctive lead vocals by Noosha Fox. When she was relegated to backing vocals for half of the tracks on the second album 'Tails of illusion' (1975), success eluded the band.

They came back in 1976 with the single 'S-S-S-Single bed', which did feature Noosha Fox on lead vocals. The single topped the chart in Australia and reached number 10 in the Dutch Top 40 and number 4 in the UK singles chart. The track was recently covered by Bananarama on their 2009 album 'Viva'.
