Londonbeat is an inter-racial R&B and dance music band who scored a number of pop and dance hits in the early nineties.
Londonbeat's career started in The Netherlands where "There's A Beat
Going On" suddenly hit the Top 10 and it was decided to give additional
attention to "9 A.M (The Comfort Zone)" which subsequently became a
modest success in the United Kingdom. They are best known for their
song "I've Been Thinking About You", which hit #1 on the Hot 100 and
the Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts in 1991, for their close
harmonies, for their members, and Willy handling all the instruments.
Band members include Americans Jimmy Helms (who also sang radio station Jingles) and George Chandler with Jimmy Chambers from Trinidad and Tobago and multi-instrumentalist William Henshall (Credited as Willy M).
Their follow-up single "A Better Love" became a Hot 100 Top 20 hit, and
they returned to #1 on the dance chart with "Come Back" (Hot 100 #62).
In 1995, Londonbeat entered the UK heats of the Eurovision Song Contest with "I'm Just Your Puppet on a ... (String)", however they were not selected to go to the main contest (losing out to rap group Love City Groove) and the single limped in at Number 55.
In 2003 Londonbeat re-grouped with a new line up and signed to German record label Coconut. An album called Back in the Hi-Life featured re-recordings of "A Better Love" and "I've Been Thinkin' About You" amongst the new tracks.
Marc Goldschmitz left the band in 2004, now pushing his German-indie-pop-projekt "die Unerklärlichen".
