Additional information about this Five Star vinyl art.

Five Star – The Band

Five Star (also styled as 5 Star) are a British pop group, formed in 1983 and comprising siblings Stedman, Lorraine, Denise, Doris and Delroy Pearson. Between 1985 and 1988, Five Star had four top 20 albums and 15 top 40 singles in the UK, including the top 10 hits “System Addict” (1986), “Can’t Wait Another Minute” (1986), “Find the Time” (1986), “Rain or Shine” (1986), “Stay Out of My Life” (1987) and “The Slightest Touch” (1987). They won the 1987 Brit Award for Best British Group. The five-piece group of siblings from Romford were masterminded by their father and manager, Buster Pearson, who modelled them in the style of the Jackson 5. He was a former recording artist and session musician who had worked with Wilson Pickett and had set up Tent Records Ltd in 1982.

System Addict – The Song

System Addict”  is a 1985 single by the British pop group Five Star. It was the group’s first Top 10 hit, reaching #3 in 1986. It is also their second biggest-selling single, being certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry for sales in excess of 250,000 copies. It was the seventh and final UK single from their debut album Luxury of Life.

The Retro Robot  – The Shape

This record has been modelled into a retro robot that was popular in the fifties. A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer—capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. A robot can be guided by an external control device, or the control may be embedded within. Robots may be constructed to evoke human form, but most robots are task-performing machines, designed with an emphasis on stark functionality, rather than expressive aesthetics.
