Living in a Box – The Artist
Living in a Box are a British band founded in 1985. They are best known for their eponymous debut single, produced by Richard James Burgess. The group currently consists of founding members Anthony “Tich” Critchlow (drums) and Marcus Vere (keyboards, synthesisers) along with vocalist Kenny Thomas.
Living in a Box – The Song
Living in a Box was their most commercially successful single, in both the UK and the US. The single was featured on the group’s self-titled debut album, which also included follow-up singles “Love is the Art”, “So the Story Goes”, and “Scales of Justice”. Their follow-up album, Gatecrashing in 1989 proved to be even more successful in the UK, generating two Top Ten hits, “Blow the House Down” (which featured Queen’s Brian May on guitar) and “Room in Your Heart”. Artistic differences, as well as changes to their record label Chrysalis, caused the band to break up in 1990 before a third album could be released.
