Haysi Fantayzee

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Haysi Fantayzee were formed in 1981, and set about injecting fun into the music scene, wearing outlandish costumes and dreadlocks, and writing songs that combined sexual subversion with disposable dayglo pop. Their 'Dickensian Rasta' look was a hit and saw their debut single John Wayne Is Big Leggy rise to #11 in the charts.

    I always thought that they were meant to have a Wild West image- he used to dress like a 'hired gun' from a Western movie, and she seemed to adopt a 'bordello madam' persona. Both 'John Wayne' and the follow-up song 'Shiny Shiny' were Western-themed.
