There are at least two bands that used the name "LOFT" or "The Loft". 1. Loft is an eurodance act from Germany. Loft stands for "Live Our Fathers’ Teaching". Members are Courtney Dean, St Patrick Williams and Richard Wayne Williams known as Ranking Richie. Several vocalists were featured like Kim Sanders, Lori Glori, Gina Mohammed and Sandra Steinborn. Producers were DMP (Michael Eisele and Dietmar Stehle). Loft released several hits like "Hold On", "Summer Summer", "Love Is Magic", "Mallorca" or "Wake The World" and the albums titled "Wake The World" (1994) and "Future World" (1995). In 2004, Loft did a come back by remixing "Summer Summer" and one year later, with a new female vocalist called Sue. The new crew recorded the singles "Still No 1" and "Love Can't Be Wrong". 2. The Loft were a short-lived indie rock band founded by Weather Prophets frontman Pete Astor. Formed in 1980 as The Living Room by Peter Astor (vocals, guitar), Bill Prince (bass), Andy Strickland (guitar) and Dave Morgan (drums), the band changed its name when they discovered a local music venue also called The Living Room. The venue was being run by Alan McGee, with whom The Loft struck up a friendship and played several gigs for. After signing to McGee's fledgling Creation Records label, the debut single "Why Does the Rain?" was issued in 1984. "Up the Hill and Down the Slope" was issued the following year, earning both band and label some critical success. A national tour as the opening act for The Colourfield was intended to give the band further exposure, but tensions within the band led to a sensational split live onstage of the Hammersmith Palais, on the final date of the tour.
