Dead or Alive
Dead or Alive is an influential New Wave band from Liverpool that rose to popularity during the 1980s and gained a cult following in Japan during that time. They are best known for the hit singles You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) and Brand New Lover. Before Pete Burns founded Dead Or Alive he was involved with a Liverpool based band named Nightmares In Wax (no relation to Nightmares on Wax). The band centred around alternative music and released their only notable record, Black Leather in 1979 or 1980.
