For most people, Flesh for Lulu was one of those one-hit-wonder alt-rock bands from the 80s. But what a hit. “I Go Crazy” was a staple of alternative radio for years. It first appeared on a 1987 album entitled Long Live the New Flesh but the big boost came with its including on the soundtrack to the John Hughes film, Some Kind of Wonderful. It then became a ubiquitous choice for all those retro CD compilations that were once so popular.
Nick Marsh was the band’s singer. He died Friday (June 5) at the age of 53 after a long bout of cancer.
