Formed in 1979 around 3 Isle of Wight born friends who’d decamped to London, various line-up changes and a costly European adventure would lead the then only instrumental outfits’ drummer, Mark King, to switch to bass so he could sell his drum kit to pay for the European debacle!. Fate, was clearly already playing its part. Involvement with Robin Scott, best known as M for his 1979 UK No.2 hit Pop Muzik, introduced them to Afro-French keyboardist and writer Wally Badarou, who would subsequently become a long time contributor to the band, who by then had decided to take their name in part, from the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy TV series, where 42 is the answer to everything. Plans to find a singer went by the wayside as keyboardist Mike Lindup and Mark King stepped up and they never looked back.
