About Go West
Peter Cox met Richard Drummie in 1974 and played him a demo tape. Richard liked what he heard and so began their continuing friendship and collaboration. In 1982 they signed a publishing deal as songwriters Cox and Drummie. They approached several record companies without success, but with the help of manager John Glover they secured some studio time and recorded their first two singles: We Close Our Eyes and Call Me. They also renamed themselves Go West.
The album Go West sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and remained on the UK chart for 83 weeks, establishing them as one of the greatest songwriting duos to emerge in the '80s. In 1986 they won the BRIT Award for Best British Newcomer.
Over the years, they've released five albums, with their latest collection being 2013's 3D which came out in three parts.
