Biography

A trio of Tony Lewis (vocals), John Spinks (guitar) and Alan Jackman (drums), Outfield formed in the East End of London, England, in the mid-80s. However, all of their success would come in the USA. Signed to Columbia Records, they recorded the bland but proficient pop rock debut Play Deep in 1986, which included the successful radio single ‘Your Love’. As a result the album rose to number 9 in Billboard’s US charts and achieved double platinum sales. A second collection, Bangin’, was released a year later and reached the US Top 20 and went gold. However, afterwards the group’s career hit a downward spiral. The group followed their Columbia Records’ boss to MCA Records in 1990 but the move failed to revive their flagging career. Jackman later played with After Hours.
