American R&B/funk band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which enjoyed some commercial success in the late 1970s and early 1980s, particularly in the UK.
Formed by drummer and vocalist "Fat" Larry James (August 2, 1949 – December 5, 1987) in 1976, band members included trumpeter/flautist Art Capehart, guitarists Ted Cohen and Tony Middleton, percussionist and lead singer Darryl Grant, saxophonist Doug Jones, bassist Larry La Bes, trombonist/alto saxophonist Jimmy Lee, and keyboardist Erskine Williams.
The band's biggest hits were "Act Like You Know", appearing on the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Soundtrack, and "Zoom", reaching number two in the UK Singles Chart in October 1982. They had three other hits in the United Kingdom: "Center City", "Boogie Town" and "Looking for Love Tonight".
On December 5, 1987, James died from a heart attack, at the age of 38, and the band folded.Wide ThumbClearartFanartBanner User Comments
