    Alison Moyet (Singer/Songwriter, June 18, 1961- )
    Released two albums: 'Upstairs At Eric's' and 'You And Me Both'

    Nickname is Yaz
    Moyet's nickname is 'Alf.'
    Clarke quit, Depeche Mode, to form 'Yazoo.'
    The name is from the Mississippi blues label 'Yazoo Records.'
    They shortened it to 'Yaz' in the U.S. to avoid legal problems. The remained 'Yazoo' in the U.K. and 'Yaz' in the U.S.
    Because of their different musical backgrounds, they were nicknamed 'The Odd Couple.'
    Moyet said: 'Love songs seem to be the ones that trip off our tongues. But love's such a load of crap, it's all games and pride and ego. People always want to possess each other.'
    After their second album, 'You and Me Both,' they disbanded (June, 1983).
    Moyet said: 'The main reason for the split, I suppose is simply that the magic that we had at first just seems to have gone.'
    They list Britain's New Wave/Techno/Dance/Pop-Synth Duo 'Soft Cell' as their musical influence.
    'Only You/Situation' hit #2 (April, 1982).
    'Upstairs at Eric's' went platinum (1,000,000 sold) in the U.K.
    A disgruntled fan sent Vince Clarke a dead pigeon with maggots, show he was upset with the break-up.
    Clarke moved on to form the successful New Wave/Techno/Dance/Pop-Synth Duo ' Erasure.'
