Happy Birthday Nick Heyward.

Born in Beckenham, Kent, England in 1961, Nick was the lead man for Haircut 100 for only one album, Pelican West. Pelican West delivered the beloved Waist High favorites, "Love Plus One," and "Favorite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)." Both songs reached the UK top 10 in 1982.

"The album gave you a lot of what it was to be a New Wave fan. It came during an innocent time, and musically, the best time ever." (Lou via amazon.com)

Nick left the band for a solo career at the end of 1982 and his debut solo album North of a Miracle was released in 1983. According to icebergradio.com, it was "a solid effort that won critical approval and sold well."

We won't tell you the story of how we unsuccessfully attempted to take the evening off from work for the Haircut 100 Bands Reunited episode.
