CHEESY pop tunes will make Jack Up The Summer one long party — thanks to the latest signings announced today.

Black Lace, once described as the band with the least street credibility in the world, will grace the stage on 80s day — Saturday, August 10.

Their biggest hit, Agadoo, reached Number 2 in June 1984 and they went on to have follow-up success with dancefloor favourites Superman, Hokey Cokey and Do the Conga.

Get your cameras ready and prepare to take part in the biggest conga line the Isle of Wight has ever seen when Black Lace get the crowd going.

Organisers said: "Their records were a bit of fun, designed to get people on the dance floor.

"Black Lace's gift to British culture is one which will cause people to immediately put their head in their hands but without realising it, they'll be launching into the lyrics that once divided lovers of proper music and the wider record-buying public — "Agadoo doo-doo, push pineapple, shake a tree."

"We intend to ensure there's increased seating provision in the bar at this time as we fully anticipate a mass exodus in this general direction."

Living up to its promise of celebrating the upbeat, feel-good, fun atmosphere of the 80s, the Saturday will also welcome English novelty pop music act Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers, and British glam rock band Doctor and the Medics.

The live performance of Jive Bunny on the decks will be backed by professional dancers to create the ultimate party experience.

Doctor and the Medics are best known for their 2.4 million selling Number One hit in 18 countries Spirit in the Sky.

This unique and sensationally flamboyant act won over the crowd early Jack Up events.

The band's chalk-faced vocalist The Reverend Clive Thomas Jackson said: "We absolutely love this brilliant event and are great friends not just with the organisers but have made some really good friendships with people on the Isle of Wight as a result of performing at the Jack Up The Summer.

"It is a pleasure to be invited back to get the party started."

Tickets can be purchased online at or at Island outlets including the County Press office in Newport.
