Bananarama

Siobhan Fahey, Keren Woodward, Sarah Dallin

Also known as Dallin-Fahey-Woodward, 香蕉女郎

Short biography of Bananarama: Bananarama was formed in London in 1981 by childhood friends [a=Keren Woodward] and [a=Sarah Dallin] and their friend [a=Siobhan Fahey].
After a debut single produced by former [a=Sex Pistols] member [a=Paul Cook] that shook the UK pop market to its very foundation (a #92 smash), they teamed up with ex [a=Specials, The] member [a=Terry Hall]'s new band, [a=Fun Boy Three]. "It Ain't What You Do", released in February 1982 entered the UK charts at number 4.
International success came with their self-titled second album produced by [a=Tony Swain] and [a=Steve Jolley] and the monster hit single "Cruel Summer".

In 1986, the girls teamed up with UK dance music super-producers [a=Stock Aitken Waterman] and achieved number one all around the world, including the US, with their cover of the [a=Shocking Blue]'s classic "Venus". In 1988, the trio were named by the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful female group in pop history, beating [a=Supremes, The]. They celebrated by releasing a SAW-produced version of the Supremes' "Nathan Jones". After the single's release however, Fahey decided to leave the trio to form [a=Shakespear's Sister]. She was replaced by [a=Jacquie O'Sullivan] who had appeared with the original Bananarama line-up in the [a=Eurythmics] video for "Who's That Girl", back in June 1983. O'Sullivan left in late 1991.
Sara and Keren have since continued as a duo.

Following a one-off reunion recording of [a=ABBA]'s "Waterloo" with Siobhan in April 1998 for Channel 4's "Eurotrash" TV series hosted by [a=Jean Paul Gaultier], the duo returned in 2001 with their 8th studio album, [i]Exotica[/i]. In February 2002, Bananarama celebrated their 20th anniversary, joined on-stage by Siobhan. Their 2005 club hit "Move In My Direction" is their first UK single release since 1993.

All through their career the girls have, together or individually, married [a=Eurythmics]' male half ([a=David A. Stewart]), dated [a=Wham!]'s straight half ([a=Andrew Ridgely]), reached the UK top 3 with French and Saunders, appeared on both the original [a=Band Aid] and [a=Band Aid II], met [a=Robert De Niro], shot a Japanese commercial with [a=Peter Fonda] and appeared in the movie [i]Rules Of Attraction[/i].
