Deacon Blue was formed as a vehicle to showcase the songwriting talents of frontman Ricky Ross. The Glasgow, Scotland based band's debut album Raintown (1987) was a huge success, remaining in the UK album chart for over a 16 months. Raintown was about life in urban Scotland and spawned three top ten hits for the band, "Loaded", "Chocolate Girl" and "Dignity". Although their second album When The World Knows Your Name (1989) was more commercially successful it didn't obtain the same critical praise, with some critics going so far as to accuse the band of selling out to achieve pop success, rather than maintaining artistic integrity. However the public were unconcerned and the album reached No.1 in the UK album charts and produced three top forty hits "Real Gone Kid", "Fergus Sings the Blues" and "Wages Day".
