Formed in 1972, the band has had a few name changes in its history. Originally they called themselves Pipeline but they changed their name to the Jam by the mid-'70s. In 1977 they changed their name again as the British punk band The Jam became a sensation; their new name was Universal Robot Band. In 1979 they signed to Atlantic Records using the name Kleeer. Becoming a cult band in the UK and US they enjoyed a string of hits in the R&B Charts. In the US national charts they had 3 top 40 entries, they had 2 in the top 50 in the UK, the only one both sides of the water being "Get Tough" although "Keep That Body Working" is the track that they are remembered for.

"Intimate connection" is a fav of mine along with "Keep your body working" and "Next time it's for real"
