10CC

SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

10CC is an English rock band who achieved great commercial success in the 1970s. Originally the consisted of four members: Graham Gouldman, Eric Stewart, Kevin Godley, and Lol Creme, who had already played together for some three years, before assuming the "10cc" name in 1972.

For the most part, 10cc featured two strong songwriting teams, one 'commercial' and one 'artistic', but both teams injected sharp wit into lyrically dextrous and musically varied songs. Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-song-writers, who created most of the band's accessible songs. By way of contrast, Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility and cinematic inspired writing. Every member was a multi-instrumentalist, singer, writer and producer.
