Biography

Dancehall music duo, born Brian Thompson and Patrick Morrison. Brian is originally from England but moved to Jamaica at age 3, while Patrick is from Manchester, Jamaica. They formed in 1986 after they meeting at the finals of the Tastee Talent Contest in Jamaica, in which Brian placed 1st and Patrick 2nd. Thereafter they linked up with Mikey Bennett and formed the pair they currently are.

They made a name for themselves in the 1990s churning out songs like “Sherrie Baby,” “Bulls Eye,” “Can You,” “A Love That’s Real,” “Compliments on Your Kiss” (an international hit which featured Red Dragon), and the cover of “Poison” which featured Dennis Brown.

The duo is featured on “2 Way,” the first single from Rayvon’s new album. The single also features Shaggy and Rik Rok.

The first song they recorded together was “Ebony Eyes” on the Red Rock label, probably the first and only song released on that label.

The song opened a few bolted doors for them, as they caught the attention of producers such as King Jammys and Bobby Digital.

“Bulls Eye” was their first hit but the big break came in 1990 when they teamed with Dennis Brown on a remake of “Poison.” Suddenly, the duo was on almost every gig being staged in Jamaica. Brown then invited them to perform with him at Inseparable at the National Arena in Kingston, Jamaica.
