Take That

From Academic Kids

Take That was a boy band which originated in Manchester, England in 1990. The band released its first single in 1991 and broke up in 1996. Members included songwriter Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, and Robbie Williams, who left the band to follow a solo career in 1995. Take That had a total of eight number one hits in the UK singles chart. The success of the band inspired a cycle of manufactured Pop acts that came to dominate the UK music industry of the next decade. Take That's image was often described as purposefully homoerotic which may have contributed to their failure to break into the North American market.

Their first album, "Take That and Party," was released in 1992. Notable single releases from this album included "It Only Takes a Minute" and "Could it be Magic", covers of previous hits by Tavares and Barry Manilow respectively.

"Nobody Else", their 1995 album, included the songs "Never Forget" (subsequently released as a single in a Jim Steinman remix version), and their biggest hit single "Back For Good", and was followed by the "Greatest Hits"-Compilation in 1996 by which time they were already a four-piece band.
