Blancmange is a British synthpop band that is best known for their hits in the early to mid 1980s.
According to a Smash Hits interview done by Chris Heath, Neil Arthur attended the University of Birmingham at the same time that Duran Duran lead singer Simon Le Bon did. Years later, when the two met up backstage at a Top Of The Pops taping, Le Bon recognized Arthur from university days and the two met up for a drink and some friendly chat.
Before forming Blancmange, Luscombe was a member of the West Middlesex group, 'Miru Music Club'. Luscombe also recorded with the 'Spontaneous Music Orchestra' and the 'Portsmouth Sinfonia'.
Blancmange was formed in Harrow, London in 1979 by vocalist Neil Arthur (born 15 June, 1958, in Darwen, Lancashire) and instrumentalist Stephen Luscombe (born on 29 October, 1954, in Hillingdon, Middlesex). The duo released their first EP "Irene and Mavis" the following year, but had their first real exposure via a track on the seminal Some Bizarre compilation...
