Yazoo - Don't Go


On this date in 1982, Yazoo released their second single, "Don't Go". It was backed by "Winter Kills". Both songs appeared on their debut album, Upstairs At Eric's. The single reached the #3 spot on the U.K. singles chart but failed to chart in the U.S. The Essex, England new wave band disbanded in 1983 after two albums. Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode, went on to form Erasure. Yazoo was known as Yaz in the U.S. because there was already a U.S. band named Yazoo. The band has recently reunited to tour.
