The band started under the name "Young & Moody", releasing a self-titled album on Magnet Records in 1977. Later they changed their name to "The Young & Moody Band". Their 1981 single "Don't Do That" also featured Lemmy from Motörhead, Cozy Powell and The Nolans and charted at #63 on the UK Singles Chart.
Their follow-up single, 'These Eyes', was used in a U.K. jeans commercial (circa 1981). Graham Bonnet (ex Rainbow) did the vocals (but not on the single) and the lyrics 'these eyes' were replaced with the word 'Levis'. Written by Young and Moody, it was sung by Ed Hamilton, who wrote "Night Games" from Bonnet's third album Line-Up. Both tracks were available as singles on Bronze Records and featured on the compilation album A Quiet Night In. When released on that compilation album, it earned gold discs abroad.
