Man 2 Man
Man 2 Man
However, another band had already claimed the right to use this name, so the Zone brothers became known as Man 2 Man. Under this name the band scored their biggest hit, "Male Stripper", teaming up with cult electro producer Man Parrish. Originally released in the United Kingdom in 1986 on the Bolts Records label, "Male Stripper" was a big club hit throughout the autumn and peaked at #64 on the UK Singles Chart. In early 1987, "Male Stripper" charted again in the UK, and this time the song became an even bigger hit, spending five weeks in the Top 10 and two weeks at #4 on the UK Singles Chart. Unfortunately, this success was never seen by group member Mikki, who had died of spinal meningitis on December 31, 1986. Due to the death of Mikki, Paul Zone decided to rename the act Man to Man and recorded a follow-up single. The record was a cover version of the Grace Jones hit "I Need A Man", which charted at number 43 on the UK charts. Paul continued recording under this name into the 1990s, working with producers such as Jacques Morali. "I'll Try Anything Once" was released in 2008 on iTunes and features vocals by Debbie Harry of Blondie. Read more on Last.fm.
