Info: One of the many so called UK power pop bands to emerge from the new wave, the Jags did so in style with their classic debut ‘Back Of My Hand’. They came together when Nick Watkinson and his school friend, John Alder from Scarborough, Yorkshire, England, began writing songs together around 1977. Despite Watkinson leaving for Bournemouth College Of Art they remained in contact and in late 1978 formed the Jags together. Watkinson sang while Alder played guitar; the line-up was completed by Steve Prudence from Guildford, Surrey, England on bass and Alex Baird on drums. Baird from Glasgow, Scotland was the only member with any real previous experience, having once played alongside Midge Ure in Stumble (before Ure found fame in Slik) and also playing for a while in the Banned. Signed to Island they released ‘Back Of My Hand’ in 1979, which reached the Top 20. The follow up - ‘Woman’s World’ - was their only other hit but their debut album was well received. Mainly produced by Jon Astley and Phil Chapman, production assistance was credited to Buggles who were just making their own breakthrough as recording artists. The follow-up album in 1981 was produced by Alex Sadkin and contained strong singles in ‘The Sound Of G-O-O-D-B-Y-E’ and ‘I Never Was A Beachboy’.
