About Fancy

The British band Fancy were doomed by their deeply lascivious version of the Troggs' "Wild Thing," which was released in 1974 and became a surprise hit. The group changed their sound right away from sleazy disco to chugging rock & roll -- scoring success with 1974's "Touch Me" single -- but never quite escaped the shadow of "Wild Thing." Their two mid-'70s albums (Wild Thing and Fancy Turns You On) skillfully stand at the crossroads of glam, funk, disco, and pop, however, and show that the band were more talented than one might assume.
