Fine Young Cannibals was a British band formed in Birmingham, England in 1984, by bassist David Steele, guitarist Andy Cox (both formerly of The Beat), and singer Roland Gift (formerly of the Akrylykz). Its self-titled 1985 debut album contained "Johnny Come Home" and a cover of "Suspicious Minds", two songs that were top 40 hits in the UK, Canada, Australia and many European countries. Its 1989 album, The Raw & the Cooked, topped the UK and US Album charts, and contained two Billboard Hot 100 number ones: "She Drives Me Crazy" and "Good Thing". In 1990 the band won two Brit Awards: Best British Group, and Best British Album (for The Raw & the Cooked). Its name came from the 1960 film All the Fine Young Cannibals starring Robert Wagner and Natalie Wood.
