The record company recognised this fact with this release: the 12" single of 'Hang on now' came with a free poster. It took away attention from the fact that the music was pretty good, too: 'Hang on now' features lush synthesizers and a great guitardriven melody. Tuesday, 20 April Turn your back on me - Kajagoogoo. Without Limahl, Kajagoogoo were still able to produce some cracking tracks.
And the single 'Turn your back on me' with its great drums and percussion may be their finest track. It was released as a 12" single as well, featuring an extended version that brought out all the best bits from the song plus some extras. Sunday, 3 January Shouldn't do that - Kaja. I always am a bit miffed when I find out that there's a special edition of a record or cd I already have.
And so, just a few weeks after buying Kaja's ' Shouldn't do that ', I found out there was a limited edition double single edition - and I was rather irritated by that. Fortunately, I didn't spend a fortune on the single I bought in April, and this double single version wasn't particularly expensive either, so I've got three discs for the price of one, so to speak.
No further singles by Kaja, as the band named themselves in when they tried to shed the image of the teen idol band Kajagoogoo, charted. My collection: 7" single no. Thursday, 17 September Turn your back on me - Kajagoogoo.
Released in the summer of , 'Turn your back on me' was Kajagoogoo's last significant hit. Although it only reached number 47 in the UK singles chart, it reached number 16 in the Dutch Top 40 and also made number 2 in the American dance chart. This single contains the original version of the song.
It was subsequently remixed, and that version appears on most cd's nowadays. Friday, 11 September The lion's mouth - Kajagoogoo. With the benefit of hindsight, I think you can conclude that the lack of success for Kajagoogoo can be explained by their inconsistence in sound. After the hard rock sound of ' Big apple ', they suddenly presented 'The lion's mouth', a brass-driven affair.
The single reached number 25 in the UK singles chart but failed to chart in many European countries. Monday, 7 September Big apple - Kajagoogoo. He wanted the band to go in a different direction to the rest of us. Eventually, we realised we were on a different planet to Limahl. Guitarist Steve Askew commented "At first We're very normal people whereas Limahl likes the bright lights. After this, public interest in the group waned, and their next single " Turn Your Back On Me " failed to make the Top The subsequent new album, Islands , was also a commercial disappointment, peaking at No.
In the US, the band first adopted the Kaja moniker at this time, and a different edition of the Islands album was released there as Extra Play , peaking at No. In an attempt to regain credibility and lose their light-hearted, bubblegum image, the remaining three members relaunched as Kaja in the UK in After this proved unsuccessful, the group disbanded in December The original five-piece line-up of the band briefly joined forces again on VH1 's Bands Reunited in Following the much publicised VH1 reunion, the original group received many offers and incentives to continue to play together,  but disagreements continued between the band members and the reunion was short-lived, as Limahl and Strode both departed the band again shortly thereafter, ultimately leading them to dissolve the following year.
The group felt that the VH1 feature was unfairly edited to portray simplified reasons as to why Limahl was fired and Strode had left the band in the s. However, the album was postponed, and in February , the three Kajagoogoo members announced plans to reunite with original members singer Limahl and drummer Jez Strode.
This was due in part to Bradley Snelling, the organiser of the Retrofest event and the band's new manager. Snelling had succeeded in reuniting the band, arranging their first photo shoot together in 25 years. The band wrote on their official site that "[t]he atmosphere was relaxed, jovial and, after 25 years, Kajagoogoo, in their original five-piece line-up are back". After reforming, the band wrote new material, released an EP, and toured extensively throughout Europe, performing first in Denmark on 14 June , at Esbjerg Rock Festival ,  where they performed the 16 tracks off the remastered edition of Islands , including encores and B-sides, such as "Monochromatic" or "The Garden".
Their Gone to the Moon album, recorded as a three-piece outfit prior to the full reunion, was distributed via the live shows and "Kajashop", the band's online store. In August while in the middle of a tour, Kajagoogoo again took to the stage to headline the 'Hobble on The Cobbles' all day music event in Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. It featured two newly recorded tracks, plus a brand new promotional video for "Space Cadet", one of the new recordings.
