The PSB-Fancy-Bobby O-connection

#1 Post by telys » Thu 28 Nov 2019, 1:32 pm

I've tried to solve this riddle for some years now but I've quite not succeeded yet.

The PSB collaboration with Bobby O is fairly straightforward by now but there's a mix of the original version of One more chance which credits "Tess" as the remixer. Tess is also credited for a ZYX-records megamix.
Tess used to be one of the nomes de guerre for the artist known as Fancy, famous for such classic hits as Bolero, Chinese eyes and of course Slice me nice.
Slice me nice (1984) shares riff with both Passion (1982) and Helpess (1984) by Bobby O (through The Flirts).
I haven't quite figured out the relationship between Fancy and Bobby O. Anybody knows something more?

The mix of One more chance I have is off the “Fancy & Friends” compilation.

Fancy (under the pseudonym Ringo) also covered Divine's "Shoot Your Shot" which was written by Bobby O.
I guess they just knew each other and were probably friends.
