    Tapestry of Delights:
    This pop band formed in Bradford. Norman, Silson and Utley had previously been in a band called The Elizabethans. In 1968, with Pete Spencer also on board, they became Kindness and later Smokey, finally changing to Smokie in 1975. Their big break came when they joined Rak Records and Mickie Most introduced them to the songwriting partnership of Chinn and Chapman. Norman's distinctive vocals were quite appealing and with the likes of If You Think You Know How To Love Me, Don't Play Your Rock'n'Roll To Me, Wild Wild Angels, I'll Meet You At Midnight and Living Next Door To Alice they registered some good quality pop singles. They were still going strong as 1976 ended though they failed to make much impact on the lucrative US market, but competed well against the emerging punk scene for a while. When the hits dried up in the eighties Norman and Spencer, who'd been doing a greater share of the songwriting in Smokie's later days, turned to songwriting for other artists in the Rak stable. They were also responsible for the England World Cup Squad's This Time We'll Get It Right in 1982.
