‘Racey’ has had great successes. Total worldwide record sales for ‘Racey’ were approximately 5 million covering the U.K. Europe, Scandinavia, Australia & New Zealand. Lay your Love on Me’ and ‘Some Girls’ were both awarded Gold discs. The bands chart success finally dried up, and in mid ’85’ ‘Racey’ split.
Until 1990… ‘Racey’ reformed ………………. Clive and Phil were approached to play at a 4th July party and decided to reform ‘Racey’ – they had been asked on numerous occasions before but due to business commitments the timing had not been right.
Along with the other original member of ‘Racey’ Pete Miller plus new Key board player Ian Hewitt; ‘Racey’ played to a sellout crowd, went down a storm, the boys felt great to be back, and back they are with a vengance.
Pete Miller sadly died on May 6th 2003 after losing his battle with cancer. His wit, musical love, and great voice will be deeply missed. GOD REST YOU PETE!
Racey continue to play throughout the UK and Europe to large audiences and loyal fans. Matt Venn our bass player is also from Weston-super-Mare, Racey’s hometown. The band have also appeared on lots of different TV shows,in Europe and England, so keep an eye out for Racey on your TV screens.
When Clive, Phil, Ian and Matt are not touring, the boys can be found hard at work in their recording studio…. So, stay switched on & tuned in & remember…. Some Girls Do!!
In 1982 the band reformed, at first for a fan club reunion show and a few one-off concerts. By 1984 with nostalgia booming in Germany, the band were enjoying considerable success once again on the live concert scene. It is fair to say that this second generation Rubettes period was most significant with the band gaining a bigger and more loyal following and playing to larger audiences than they ever did in their “70’s heyday”.
