Fools Dance were a short-lived English rock band formed in 1983. Initially calling themselves The Cry, this band featured former Cure members Simon Gallup and Matthieu Hartley and played their first gig at the Covent Garden Rock Garden on 19 April 1983.[1][2] The group changed their name to Fools Dance later that year after some lineup changes. Although Fools Dance recorded a number of songs and played several gigs in their brief existence, they never released a full-length album. The only material they ever issued were two EPs: Fools Dance and They'll Never Know.
