    His former group, Orange Juice, were also one hit wonders, with 'Rip it Up' (1983).
    He is reputedly stubborn and difficult to work with.

    After ten years of obscurity, his 'A Girl Like You' was an international hit.
    He produces other bands.
    He co-created and starred in a late '90s British sit-com 'West Heath Yard,' which satirized the music industry.

    He produces sharp, witty lyrics and has a terrific sense of humor.
    In a February 2005 interview, he admitted to feelings of nausea and dizziness, but attributed it to food poisoning. Two days later, he was hospitalized after suffering a severe cerebral hemorrhage.
    He ranked #68 with 'A Girl Like You' on VH1's '100 Greatest One Hit Wonders.'
