The Anti-Heroin Project - Live In World







Note YouTube channel

 'It's a Live-In World' (EMI records 1986) - I originally dreamed up and pretty much single handed put together this project as a band aid record for the anti drugs campaign in the mid 1980's. The artists I managed to pull into the project through twisting arms up backs, blackmail and other assorted devious avenues were as follows : - Holly Johnston - Frankie Goes to Hollywood / John Parr / Elkie Brooks / Cliff Richard / Bonnie Tyler / Sheila Ferguson - The Three Degrees / Kim Wilde / Suggs - Madness / Jim Diamond / Madness / Mike Peters - The Alarm / Fish - Marillion / The Thompson Twins / Steve Harley / Bobby Tench / Elvis Costello / Hayley Mills / Crispian Mills / Nick Kershaw / Hazel O'Connor / Hazel Dean / Polly Styrene / Tommy Eyre / Mel Collins / Tony Beard / Robin Gibb / Julian Littman / Phil Fearon / Drummie Zeb - Aswad / Edwin Starr / Sinitta / Nick Heywood - Haircut 100 / Roger Daltrey / Zak Starkey / John Entwistle / Dave Stewart / Barbara Gaskin / Bobby Whitlock / Jonno and Denis / Pete Wylie / Ringo Starr / Bill Oddie / John Cleese / Dire Straits / Roy Harper / Feargal Sharkey / Chris Rea / Saxon / Banarnarama / Boon / Big Jim Sullivan / Eddie McDonald / Meatloaf / Ian McNabb / New Model Army / Jimmy Pursey / Tom Watt / Anti Smack Band / Bucks Fizz / Vince Clark / Chas and Dave / Eurythmics / Herbie Flowers / Brinsley Forde / Precious Wilson and many more.

Other than Bob Geldof ('Band Aid') and Nile Rogers ('We are Family Foundation') there aren't many 'one man bands' who have achieved music projects of this enormity.

Around this time I also got to co-produce tracks with Paul and Linda McCartney, writing songs for Kim Wilde, Ringo Starr, John Cleese, Bonnie Tyler, Elkie Brooks, Fish from Marillion and producing Elvis Costello and Loudon Wainright 111.
