Sad Cafe were one of those Manchester England cult bands, the kind only really talked about in that area (I suppose.) If it wasn't for the Buzzcocks and Joy Division, that would be the only thing the city would be known for.


hahahhahha. I forgot about Sad Cafe. Didn't they do a song called "my oh my" as well?



Slade did a song called "My oh My" if that's what your're thinking of praps?


No, WBM is right - Sad Cafe did have a single called My Oh My. A top 20 hit in 1980. A bit Stonesy IIRC.

At the risk of losing that final tiny oz of credibility I really liked their first album, Fanx Ta Ra at the time (hello I Music Snob!), especially the single Black Rose, even though I was very into punk by then.

I've just had a look at wiki and it appears that a version of the band is still going (with the two original guitarists). Sadly the singer, Paul Young (no, not that one!) died some years ago.
