Kajagoogoo are a British pop band, best known for their hit single, 'Too Shy', which reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart and No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1983. Art Nouveau, the forerunner of Kajagoogoo, was originally founded in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire, in 1979, as a four-piece avant-garde instrumental group, with Nick Beggs on bass guitar, Steve Askew on lead guitar, Stuart Croxford Neale on keyboards, and Jeremy 'Jez' Strode on drums. Art Nouveau released a track called 'The Fear Machine'. The single sold a few hundred copies, and was played on the John Peel show, but the band were unable to get a record deal.
