There is more than one band with the name "Loose Ends". 1. One of the top British dance and urban contemporary trios in the early '80s, Loose Ends formed in London. They were originally called Loose End, and included Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene, and Steve Nichol. Virgin signed them in 1981, and their debut was written by Chris and Eddie Amoo of the Real Thing. The group changed its name to Loose Ends in 1983, and signed with MCA in America in 1984. Their single "Hanging on a String (Contemplating)" topped the R&B charts in 1985, and they repeated that achievement in 1986 with "Slow Down." Their last hit was "Watching You" in 1988, which reached number two. The group shuffled its lineup in 1990 for the release of Look How Long, with McIntosh now joined by Linda Carriere and Sunay Suleyman. For those that know, the Symptoms of Love, has got to be one of the best one minute songs ever! McIntosh also produced several artists, notably Caron Wheeler. 2. A early/mid 80's influenced hardcore punk band from central New Jersey. Their first EP "Cut Loose" was released in 2011.
