But despite this success, Datchler quit after the group’s sixth single, Don’t Say It’s Love, another cut from the album. He went off to resume his solo career, while the remaining members of Johnny Hates Jazz hired previous collaborator Phil Thornalley to front the group. Datchler’s solo album flopped, as did the Johnny Hates Jazz album recorded without him.
