The band’s debut single, “Boxerbeat”, peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart, while the group were the opening act on the Madness Rise and Fall tour. However, it was their next hit, “Just Got Lucky”, that broke the band internationally. This single sold over 250,000 copies, made the UK Top 10, and cracked the US Top 40, reaching number 36 during November 1983 and has been featured in a number of films. JoBoxers’ debut album, Like Gangbusters, featuring all of the above mentioned hits, reached the Top 20 of the UK Albums Chart. The band split up during the making of a third album and the members went on pursue various music related careers.

The Baker Boy Hat – The Shape
This record has been modelled into Buz Wayne or a Jo Boxer wearing their distinctive Baker Boy style hat and braces. The baker boy hat or newsboy cap, newsie cap (American) is a casual-wear cap similar in style to the flat cap. It has a similar overall shape and stiff peak (visor) in front as a flat cap, but the body of the cap is rounder, made of eight pieces, fuller, and panelled with a button on top, and often with a button attaching the front to the brim (as the flat cap sometimes has).
