Biography

Larry Wu (a.k.a. Larry Wedgeworth) hails from New York and is a singer, songwriter and producer. Larry first appeared on the music scene in 1980 with an unusual single entitled ‘No More Games’ on the Massachusetts based label Groovehall Records under the name of Larry Wedgeworth And Clique. The single was unusual in as much as it was recorded as the ‘Official Fight Song Of The Boston Celtics’.

After a move to Atlantic Records, Larry recorded ‘Let Me Show You’ in 1984 under his other name of Larry Wu. This single is a sought after piece of boogie which had become hard to get over the last five years.

The track has since become highly sought after on the U.K. soul scene. Larry moved on to Next Plateau Records and formed the group Modernique.

The bands first 12″ release, ‘Love’s Gonna Get You’ became highly popular on the UK and U.S. dancefloors.Modernique moved to Sire Records, in 1987, for the album ‘Modernique’, by which time Larry’s identity had taken another name change to Larry ‘Woo’ Wedgeworth.

Following that release, Larry and his co producer Gordon ‘Megabucks’ Worthy, turned to producing on a more regular basis. Amongst other artists, Larry has produced tracks for Eleanor Mills (‘Mr Right’) for his company Modernique Music.
