Breakout - Swing out sister

Swing Out Sister was formed by Andy Connell and Martin Jackson with Corinne Drewery. They took their name from a 1945 movie starring Arthur Treacher, called 'Swing Out, Sister', and they claim they chose the name because it was the only thing the band could agree on, in that they all hated it.

Prior to their debut album, they released the single 'Blue mood' in the UK in November 1985. This single did not chart. The first single from their debut lbum 'It's better to travel' was a big hit, however. It reached the number four position on the UK singles chart in November 1986 and number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 in November 1987. Meanwhile, in the Netherlands it peaked at number 30 in January 1987.
