Fine Young Cannibals is the debut album released in 1985 by the band of the same name. The album features the UK #8 debut hit single “Johnny Come Home”.

Fine Young Cannibals were a British band formed in Birmingham, England in 1984, by bassist David Steele, guitarist Andy Cox (both formerly of The Beat), and singer Roland Gift (formerly of the Akrylykz).

Their Their self-titled 1985 debut album was a soul-jazz pop charmer that’s more low key but every bit as entertaining. It contained the singles “Johnny Come Home” and a cover of “Suspicious Minds”.

Along the lines of early Everything But the Girl (the two groups share a producer, Robin Millar) with a heavier Motown influence, the songs on Fine Young Cannibals are uniformly strong. The singles “Johnny Come Home” (a plea to a runaway that sounds like the Beat’s ska stripped down to its tense and obsessive essentials) and “Blue” (one of the more oblique and successful anti-Margaret Thatcher tracks of its era) are terrific, but album tracks like the casually devastating “Funny How Love Is” and the manic “Like a Stranger” (which incongruously ends with a female chorus shrieking “You’ve been too long in an institution!” repeatedly while Gift tries out his Otis Redding impression) are even better. The album’s highlight, though, is a reworking of “Suspicious Minds” (with scarifying backing vocals by Jimmy Somerville) that, while it doesn’t replace Elvis’ version, certainly takes the song into an interesting new direction. Although often overlooked, especially in the U.S., in the wake of their massively successful follow-up, Fine Young Cannibals is a powerful and satisfying debut.
