Whatever happened to Barry Blue?

Goodness knows. But the question ought to be asked. He had a spurt of popularity in the Seventies with "Dancing on a Saturday night" (see video below with our Bazza in his signature blue silk cat suit and a remarkably unmoved audience behind him) and "Do you wanna dance" (see also below - this time with the attachment of blue and white frills on his catsuit) and other hits. He's been a producer and songwriter ("I eat cannibals") but goodness knows what he's doing now. I doubt whether he wears a blue silk catsuit any more, that's for sure. Here's the NME biog of him.

By the way, his real name is Barry Green. Barry Green - Barry Blue. Geddit?
