Merseyside hero Ian Prowse has formed two successful bands Pele and Amsterdam. Pele released 3 albums on Polydor/M&G Records. Abroad they scored hits in Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Holland and most notably a Number One in South Africa with 'Megalomania'.
Possibly best known for his single 'Does this train stop on Merseyside' also. The song regularly elicited an emotional response from Radio 1 DJ John Peel. Peel's widow Sheila Ravenscroft went on the station after the DJ's death and confirmed that 'He was not capable of playing it without crying'. Lead off single 'Home' was played on 21 consecutive days by Radio 2's Janice Long. Janice is a huge fan of the band having had them in no less than 4 times for live sessions. Ian also has a long standing friendship with Elvis Costello who used Amsterdam as his backing band on the Jonathan Ross television show as well as opening act on several occasions. The relationship was blessed on record when Prowse performed a duet with Costello on a cover of The Searchers 1964 hit 'Don't throw your love away' for the Liverpool Number Ones Project on EMI Records.
2012 saw Ian release 'Does this train stop on Merseyside: The Very Best of Ian Prowse' to across the board rave review and 2014 has seen Ian release his very first solo album 'WHO LOVES YA BABY' to blanket praise.
