1980 ... the tone, the sound, everything is already there. And a style already atypical for the time. Everything is there to make this small group one of the future Great !
1980 ... light and limited Rockabilly. Completely outside the standards of the time. And yet it works !
1980 ... a BIG 80's with no less than 3 titles and 3 hits. For a first year of existence, rather flattering ...
1981 ... we start again more or less on the same bases in this new year. The group confirms once again that he is not there to do only some figuration
1981 ... after the euphoria of the first tracks, here comes the moment of the sweet break. A rise in power which puts them definitively in the big leagues
1982 ... the tempo starts up again. Chase the natural, it comes back at a gallop. It's their trademark, we can't fight ...
1982 ... like an air of the tropics. And why not, this is called diversifying genres. It's obvious...
1982 ... still in super funky mode. But the English funky mode has absolutely nothing to do with its legendary American competitor ...
1983 ... which will undoubtedly remain their biggest hit. The pinnacle of a career for a truly unique group. A fresh and light style that is truly one of a kind !
1983 ... once again rhythmic and airy. This group will not necessarily remain as the most brilliantissimo of the decade but it will have really left a very special imprint of which he can be proud
1984 ... a style and a trademark that have hardly changed from the beginning to the end. Is it good, is it evil. Everyone has their own opinion ...
1984 ... a year that suggests a slight advance in rock. But really a hint. We will not do them again !
1984 ... back to basics to end in style. A group with discography in the end quite dense and of quality, that is essential !
