Biography

E-zee Possee was a band introduced to to Boy George by MC Kinky & sequentially signed to his dance label More Protein, in the late 1980’s. Fronted by Jeremy Healy (ex-Haysi Fantayzee & BONAVENTURA), each track featured a different vocalist. Also, featured in the band, were principal songwriters Simon Rogers & Angela Dust (aka Boy George). (The Angela Dust credit was changed to The Nelly Terrorist, on the US releases, licensed to Charisma Records in 1991). E-zee Possee rarely performed as a live band, usually only performing brief one or two song sets for television appearances or at raves. The nature of the multi-vocalist catalogue made touring a live show impractical, if not impossible. They chose instead to rely on multiple remixes & videos, to promote their singles / album.

“Everything Starts With an ‘E’”, with vocals by MC Kinky (real name Caron Geary) E-Zee Possee’s biggest chart success, was originally released in Summer 1989, and received very little success, peaking at #69 in the UK, and leaving the charts after only one week. However, the single was re-released less than a year later, in March 1990 and made it all the way to #15 on the UK Singles Chart, more than 50 times higher than the original chart placing, staying among the first 75 positions for 8 weeks, making it the longest chart running for the band. The group released two more singles, “The Sun Machine” (again in 1990) and “Breathing is E-Zee” (in 1991, though credited to E-Zee Possee featuring Tara Newley), which both failed commercially, reaching #62 (3 weeks totally in the charts) and #72 (only 1 week) in the UK, respectively.
