Missing - Everything But The Girl

Everything But The Girl (EBTG) are a British two-person band formed in Hull, England in 1982 by lead singer and bassist Tracey Thorn (born September 26, 1962) and guitarist Ben Watt (born December 6, 1962).

They were separately signed to Cherry Red records as solo artists, with Thorn also forming one-third of the Marine Girls trio, and just happened to be attending the University of Hull at the same time. The band's name came from the slogan of an old-fashioned furniture shop on Beverley Road, Hull (now demolished). The idea behind the slogan was that they could provide every imaginable item to furnish your home, and everything in the store was for sale, except the girl who worked there.
