The Catch

Nominee – 1996 6th Annual LA Music Awards

Possibly referring to a band from the late 70’s early 80’s called the Tourists who later on became the Eurythmics

The Tourists (1977–1980) were a British rock and pop band. They achieved brief success in the late 1970s before the band split in 1980. Two of its members, singer Annie Lennox and guitarist Dave Stewart, went on to achieve massive international success as Eurythmics.

Peet Coombes was a guitarist singer-songwriter, while Dave Stewart, also a guitarist, had been a member of the folk rock band, Longdancer, who were signed to Elton John’s Rocket label. The two moved to London and encountered Scottish singer Annie Lennox who had dropped out of her course at the Royal Academy of Music, where she had been studying flute and keyboards, to pursue her ambitions in pop music.

Forming a band in 1975, the three of them initially called themselves The Catch, and released a single “Borderline/Black Blood” in 1977 on Logo Records. The single was released in the UK, The Netherlands, Spain and Portugal but was not a commercial success.
