Right Said Fred
About Right Said Fred
Few acts have embodied one-hit wonderdom with as much infectious charm and humor as Right Said Fred. With "I'm Too Sexy," two musclebound brothers--Richard and Fred Fairbrass--donned fishnet shirts, wrote some deadpan rhymes, shot up the charts, and simultaneously glorified and sent up an age of preening self-adoration in one fell swoop. After conquering dancefloors worldwide and the number-one spot in 26 countries (including the U.S.), the duo had trouble following up the monumental success of "I'm Too Sexy", but continued to record dance-pop albums in the ensuing decades.
