Channy's post about Racey reminded me of these other greats.
When I was at Uni, the Ents guy had to book someone for our Christmas ball.
Turning down a new band with a female singer, he opted for the Rubettes.
They were great.
Debbie Harry and Blondie would have been shhite.

Same thing happened to me in the late 70s at South Bank Poly in London.
The ents committee were looking for Rag Ball Headliners. I suggested 2 upcoming bands but they wanted established stars so went for those one-minor-hit wonders the UK Subs. They were OK. No one on the committee wanted to take a chance on seeing a new band called The Police or Tubeway Army (who were on Top of the Pops 2 weeks later).

Similar switch at Percy Gee in ‘73. Went to see the Sweet, But Cockernee Knees Up Rebel were on instead (Brian Connolly having been pushed off stage by Taggart the night before).
