The Escape Club was an English rock band based in London and formed in 1983. The band was composed of former Mad Shadows members' lead singer/rhythm guitarist Trevor Steel and guitarist John Holliday, along with former Expressos members bassist Johnnie Christo (a.k.a. John Christoforou) and drummer Milan Zekavica. Zekavica had also previously played with Steel and Holliday on an album by the obscure early 80s New Wave outfit, Planning by Numbers.
In 1986, they signed with EMI and recorded the album White Fields, which was released in 1987.
Later in 1987, the group moved to Atlantic Records for their next album, Wild Wild West. The album was released in the summer of 1988. The first single, "Wild, Wild West" climbed to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and the song's distinctive video received a lot of MTV airplay.
