Norman Giscombe Jr.


Norman Giscombe was born 6 June 1960 in England. Known simply as Junior, he scored a UK Top 10 hit with "Mama Used To Say". (Norman Giscombe is the uncle of UK comedian Richard Blackwood who later covered this song in June 2000). His follow-up single, "Too Late" also made the Top 20 charts in the UK. After a period outside the charts, he made a brief return to the UK top 10 in 1987 when he sang a duet with Kim Wilde on "Another Step Closer To You". He also became involved with the formation of Red Wedge in 1986 with Billy Bragg, Jimmy Somerville, and Paul Weller.
