Haircut 100 are a British New wave group formed in 1980 by Nick Heyward.
Musically, the band was inspired by the Beatles, Talking Heads, Echo and The Bunnymen, The Clash and Sex Pistols.
They had four UK Top 10 hit singles between 1981 and 1982, including “Favourite shirts (boy meets girl)”, “Love plus one” and “Fantastic day”.
The band released two albums “Pelican west” and “Paint and paint”. This one failed to chart and the band split up soon after. Heyward, however, embarked on a briefly successful solo career in 1983, and scored several chart hits (“Whistle down the wind”, which was his first solo release in March 1983) and a Top 10 album, “North of a miracle”.
In 2004, more than 20 years after their split, Haircut 100 (including Heyward) reunited for the VH1 show Bands Reunited and performed “Love plus one” and “Fantastic day”.
In 2009, they rekindled their friendship via Facebook, and Heyward invited the rest of the band to perform at one of his solo gigs.
The band’s official website also states they have been working on new material together, but this has yet to materialize.
