Overall, it sold over 200,000 copies in the UK, earning it a Silver disc and has sold well over 2million copies worldwide. ‘I’m Gonna Get You’ is considered a dance floor classic, played constantly in the clubs, on radio and on countless compilation CDs across the world to this day. Bizarre Inc. co-wrote with Angie for their follow up single, ‘Took My Love’ which also became a U.S Dance Chart No.1. Their third album, ‘Surprise’ (1996) features more of Angies’ co-writing and of course her soon to be legendary House style vocals, which were fast becoming well known and in demand…BEGINNINGS: But lets first rewind… Angie Brown was born “sometime in the 60’s, ok?” to Almatine and Alfred, Jamaican born parents who were a Nurse and a Carpenter respectively.
She joined THE DIRTY STRANGERS (with RONNIE WOOD & KEITH RICHARDS) in the late 80’s; their albums ‘Dirty Strangers’ and ‘Diamonds’ feature Angies’ vocals on tracks including ‘Bathing Belles’ which saw them all shoot a crazy video on Hastings pier and another in Ronnie Woods’ house, both of which you can find on YouTube! Angie then joined THE DOVES for a time; their album ‘Affinity’ features Angie, most notably on rock ballad ‘Beaten up in Love Again’ and duet ‘Eyes Like Mary’. The Doves split and became RAMONA 55, which led to singles with Angie ‘Touch’, ‘More Than I Love You’ and the beautiful yet powerful ‘Black Rose’ from their album ‘An Album I Only Thought I Could Dream Of’ (Discrete Records). It was during her time with this band that Angie went for a recording session for Bizarre Inc. and the rest is history!
