Biografie

Curiosity Killed the Cat was a British pop band that found success in the UK Singles Chart in the late 1980s and early 1990s

The band tried to play soulful, jazzy, and funky pop music and was initially signed to Phonogram Records’ Mercury imprint. They first came to notice of the UK music press when they hooked up with Andy Warhol for the video of the 1986 single „Misfit“. This featured the band in New York and at one point featured frontman Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot dancing down a side street whilst Andy Warhol referenced Bob Dylan’s „Subterranean Homesick Blues“ by dropping pieces of white card in time to the music (an effect originally done in a long-form promotional film by Bob Dylan for „Subterranean Homesick Blues“ in 1965 and also copied by Warhol as well as INXS in their video for „Mediate“ in 1988 as well as many other bands).

The band’s first album, Keep Your Distance, entered the UK Albums Chart at number one in May 1987, and stayed in the Top Ten for 13 weeks, although the release of that album’s „Free“ as a single only reached number 56 in the UK Singles Chart. Just before that, a re-release of the first single, „Misfit“, had reached Number 7, continuing the group’s Top Ten placement which ended with „Free“. „Misfit“ was also their only U.S. chart single, peaking at number 42.
