There are at least 3 bands under this name:

(1) Moving Pictures were a rock music group formed in Sydney, Australia in the early 1980s.

The group was comprised of Alex Smith (vocals), Garry Frost (guitar), Andrew Thompson (saxophone), Charlie Cole (keyboards), Ian Lees (bass) and Paul Freeland (drums).

The band had several hit singles and albums in their native Australia, including the single “What About Me”, which remained at number one for two months in 1982. Its success led them to America where it also became a hit, reaching #29 on the Billboard singles chart. In fact, “What About Me” stayed in the Hot 100 for such a long time that it managed to make Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 list for 1983, at #88 [1] - a rare feat for a single with such a low peak position.

They contributed one song, “Never”, to the Footloose movie soundtrack but were unable to capitalize on their initial success. They returned to Australia, and achieved a few minor hits, but their career quickly faded.

(2) Chity and Carlos are joyous indie-kids in a glass house. Saccharine? Wimpish? Squeaky clean? Twee? . Probably. In any case Moving Pictures first single received a great deal of attention from the media. Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio One) give them constant airplay. Their debut album “Without friends” was clearly influenced by Sarah Records, The Go-Betweens, Mc Carthy, Bridge, France Gall, Brilliant Corners, Bodines, New Order, Cardigans, Françoise Hardy… Taste their cutesy-pie records!
