Steps

Steps was a British pop group that achieved a series of charted singles between 1997 and 2001. Their name was based around a simple marketing gimmick: each of their music videos were choreographed, and the dance steps were included with most of their single releases. Steps formed on 7 May 1997 and disbanded on 26 December 2001. In total Steps have sold over 15 million records, and achieved 14 consecutive Top 5 singles - a feat only surpassed by Oasis (with 18) and The Beatles and Westlife (who both had 22).
Steps were formed by Steve Crosby & Barry Upton (writers of "5,6,7,8") alongside Manager Tim Byrne after auditioning hopefuls who answered an ad in The Stage newspaper.

Their first single "5,6,7,8" was a techno line dance song. Though not typical of what would become their style, it became their first hit both in the UK and internationally. Despite only peaking at #14, the single achieved considerable longevity in the fast-paced singles climate of 1998, racking up over four months on the UK chart. The track remains one of the highest selling singles never to reach the top 10 on the UK Singles Chart.
