The group was first formed in 1982 by members of the 7:84 Theatre group, a socialist fringe theatre group who used acappella singing in a production called One Big Blow, the story of the 1982 miner's strike in the UK, from the miner's point of view. In 1983 'Only You', their cover of a song by Yazoo, went straight to number 1 in the UK charts and was to remain there for five weeks over the Christmas of 1983. Since 1983 there have been over 25 members of the Flying Pickets; some returning to the band more than once. The group continued to tour for the next quarter of the century and produced another dozen albums including 2010's Christmas called 'Only Yule'! The Flying Pickets are now celebrating their 30th year.
