Mark Reilly

MATT BIANCO is a UK band that was formed in 1983. They are mainly known for their success in the mid-1980s and their jazz, Latin-flavoured music, and hits including "Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed", "Whose Side Are You On?", "Half A Minute", "More Than I Can Bear", "Yeh Yeh", and "Don't Blame It On That Girl". Very popular during the mid-1980s in continental Europe, MATT BIANCO was part of the new jazz pop genre, that they shared with acts such as 'Working Week', Sade, 'Everything But The Girl', and 'The Style Council'. The name suggests that MATT BIANCO is a person, often assumed to be an alias for the main constant member and frontman, Mark Reilly, but it's in fact "a made-up spy, a secret agent; we loved spy TV themes and film scores".
