As founding member Graham Gouldman says, “Our main influences were The Beatles and the Beach Boys. Then there was all the other stuff … For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. Eric [Stewart] was more rock ’n’ roll, the blues and R&B; while Kevin [Godley] and Lol [Creme] were sort of Jacques Brel, more artistic and avant-garde. “It’s what happened when we put all those things together that made 10cc.” The result was some of the greatest pop records of the 20th century.

From their breakthrough No 2 hit Donna in 1972, to their final No 1 – Dreadlock Holiday – in 1978, via such landmark releases as I’m Not In Love, their worldwide smash in 1975, 10cc stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by the very greatest music practitioners. In truth, they could have come from any era. 10cc would have been as at home in the dynamic early days of pop in the 1950s, as they would have been in the instant-gratification download culture of today. As Gouldman points out, “It was all about the songs. Not the image or who the singer was or who played which instrument.” Like The Simpsons, 10cc could be appreciated on several levels: pure entertainment delivered by pop-sophisticates. As Rolling Stone put it in 1975, ‘There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.’ It wasn’t anything the group built towards either, it was all there on their very first record Donna. You didn’t have to be conversant with the doo-wop-channelled-through-Frank Zappa influence to appreciate its inventiveness. “We were just trying to amuse ourselves,” says Gouldman now. “That was why it worked. The fact was we had our own recording facility, Strawberry Studios in Stockport. We actually started writing together just for a laugh, really. We weren’t consciously trying to make hit records.”

How Dare You (1976) is the fourth album by these British Art-Pop Rockers. Its brilliant cover art was designed by the recently deceased Storm Thorgersson of Hipgnosis. After attaining worldwide success with their hit "I'm Not In Love", 10cc returned with a varied set of songs, often tongue-in-cheek humor and eccentric songwriting. Hits "I'm Mandy, Fly Me" and "Art For Art's Sake" are little stories with wonderful poppy hooks and catchy choruses. This is 10cc at their creative peak!

"[A] well-crafted album that shows off 10cc's eccentric humor and pop smarts in equal measure... [I]t remains a solid album of witty pop songs that will satisfy anyone with a yen for 10cc." - Donald A. Guarisco,
