Fine Young Cannibals were a British rock music band formed in Birmingham, England, in 1984, by bassist David Steele, guitarist Andy Cox (both formerly of The Beat), and singer Roland Gift (formerly of the Akrylykz). Their self-titled 1985 debut album contained "Johnny Come Home" and a cover of "Suspicious Minds", two songs that were top 40 hits in the UK, Canada, Australia and many European countries

Fine Young Cannibals is the debut album released in 1985 by the band of the same name. The album features the UK debut hit single "Johnny Come Home". This success did not continue with the next single, "Blue", which languished at in the UK. The version of "Blue" on the original .

One of the most exciting albums released during a decade of artifice and extravagance, in a mere ten songs and 35 minutes the Fine Young Cannibals created a masterpiece. Admittedly the trio had some help - backing singers, guest musicians (including former Squeeze piano man Jools Holland and Talking Head's Jerry Harrison) - but that doesn't take away the band's own accomplishment. Remaining true to the FYC's vision of tying past and present musical styles together into artful new pop packages, The Raw & the Cooked features a shopping list of genres.

With The Raw & the Cooked, the Fine Young Cannibals broke into the mainstream with their particular soul-injected sound. They were seemingly infatuated with late-'50s and early-'60s Motown, and the musical influences on this album range from boogie ("Good Thing," on which Squeeze keyboardist Jools Holland goes to town with a foot-stompin' piano solo) to poodle-skirted slow dance ("As Hard As It Is," "Tell Me What"), then stretch as far as Prince-like funk ("Don't. Let It Get You Down")

Fine Young Cannibals. If we’re talking meals, this second album is about as tasty as the first, though there are three songs in a row at about the midway point that never should’ve made the cut. I also question the sequencing, which begins and ends the set on random notes of romance. As Hard As It Is, a heartbreak ballad that conjures 1950s soul, is a delicacy though. It’s one of a few songs peaked-out by the ingenious, albeit gay, ad-libs of singer Roland Gift.
