The Associates formed in 1979 in Edinburgh. Initially a duo performing standards and soul covers, Billy MacKenzie and Alan Rankine scored three hit singles and two critically-acclaimed albums by 1982. However, they went their separate ways toward the end of the year.
Billy MacKenzie continued under the Associates name with various musicians, releasing a number of albums through the 80s. Wild and Lonely was the last album under this name, released in 1990. It was recorded with a supporting cast of around 20 personnel, including contributions from Art of Noise core member Anne Dudley amongst others.
The reissues of "Wild And Lonely" and "Outernational" will be released on August 8, 2006. ??
