Kajagoogoo Ooh to be Ah Video Shoot
Kajagoogoo – the Ooh to be Ah Video Shoot
The follow up hit to debut single to Too Shy was the top 10 smash Ooh to be Ah.
KajaFax is pleased to bring you yet another piece of premier ‘Goo history courtesy of Jez Strode with yet more marvellous photos.
Early one Sunday morning back in 1983, Kajagoogoo took ownership of Regent Street in London to film the promotional video for Ooh to be Ah. With celebrity friends Christopher Timothy and Kenny Everett (who was a big fan of the band) the guys shot the tongue in cheek promo in and around the Café Royal. The track was the second single to be lifted from debut long player ‘White Feathers’ and Paul Gambaccini’s favourite track from the band.
The Café Royal was once patronised by the great Oscar Wilde, with Edward VIII and George VI also regular visitors, and way back in 1894 was the scene of a grisly murder!
Back in 1983 however, it was pop royalty on the guest list.
The café had undergone many changes by the mid 2000s…
…and by 2008 had closed completely pending a huge refurbishment:
The above photos are only a small selection – KajaFax has made this montage video of the full set of ‘behind the scenes’ shots, set to a live rendition of Ooh to be Ah….
A huge thank you to Jez for these brilliant photographs.
