Paper Lace i 1974

Paper Lace er en engelsk popgruppe fra Nottingham. Gruppen ble dannet i 1969. En gjeng musikere hadde dannet gruppen Music Box i 1967, men da Phil Wright ble med som trommeslager og vokalist endret de navnet til Paper Lace.

Deres største hit var «Billy Don't Be a Hero» som lå 3 uker på toppen av singlelisten i England i mars 1974. Den ble fulgt opp med «The Night Chicago Died» som oppnådde 3.plass. Låten «The Black-Eyed Boys» var deres siste store hit; den nådde en 11.plass sent i 1974.
