Haircut One Hundred are a British pop group formed in 1980 by Nick Heyward. The band had four UK Top 10 hit singles between 1981 and 1982, including "Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)" and "Love Plus One".Formed from a band called Moving England, Nick Heyward and Les Nemes met guitarist Graham Jones to form a new band, Haircut One Hundred. Joined by drummer Pat Hunt and manager Karl Adams the band recorded some demos. Phil Smith played saxophone on the session and he joined the group, followed by Marc Fox..The group signed to a recording contract with Arista Records. They entered Chalk Farm’s Roundhouse studios to record their debut single "Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)", which became their first hit single. The single reached number 4 in the UK Singles Chart,and saw them make their first appearance on BBC Television's Top of the Pops.For the recording of their debut album, Blair Cunningham replaced Pat Hunt on drums. Their second single was "Love Plus One", giving the band their second UK Top 10 hit, shortly followed by the release of their debut album, Pelican West, which reached number 2 in the UK Albums Chart.The band toured across the globe and appeared twice more on Top of the Pops for two further Top 10 singles, "Fantastic Day" and "Nobody's Fool".Heyward became psychologically unwell, and Mark Fox took over vocal duties, with the band as songwriters. Heyward departed at the end of 1982 after, in effect, being sacked. Their follow-up album, Paint and Paint, was released in 1984 but the momentum was lost and the album was not a commercial success. The band split up soon after.In 2009, they rekindled their friendship via Facebook, and Heyward invited them to perform at one of his solo gigs. The band then played London's indigO2 on 28 January 2011, performing Pelican West in its entirety, and it was recorded as a live double album.
