Godley & Creme were an English rock duo composed of Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. The pair met in the late 1950’s and performed in many bands together and found huge international success and acclaim with 10cc. Following the recording of the bands 4th album in 1976, the duo left 10cc to form Godley & Creme and released their first album shortly after.
