Alvin Stardust started his career as far back as the early 1960s under the name of Shane Fenton whilst playing with his band The Fentones. The Fentones had a few hit singles on the Parlophone label from 1961 to 1965.
However, Shane was so dissapointed with the bands lack of major success that the group split in 1966
After a 5 year break Shane (real name Bernard William Jewry) noticed a change in the music scene as more and more bands became popular with the emergence of "Glam Rock".
It was around 1972 that he changed his style, and his name to a more appeal to a more receptive market. Summer 1973 saw the signing of Alvin Stardust (Mr Moody) to Bell Records.
He had a string of hits including Mt Coo Ca Choo, Red Dress, and Jealous guy.
