A-E, A-E, I-O-U, U...



Not much information about Freeez except that it is an English group formed in London in the mid-1970s by John Rocca, who will be joined at the start by Andy Stennet, Peter Maas and Paul Morgan.


Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the enormous title "I.O.U" released in 1982. Single which will be a huge success at the planetary level that year.


As such alone, he deserved this article.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1980 ... 100 % Dance and above all 100 % wordless beginnings. This does not prevent the group from obtaining its first classified title. A daring bet but a winning bet !



1980 ... paradoxically, this one will have lyrics but will not be classified. Like what, sometimes, we must not try to understand ...



1981 ... the sound and style of the group are finally structured to produce a title worthy of the name. The result is immediate and allows them to obtain their best ranked title to date



1981 ... a more messy sequel. All on a track once again almost 100 % instrumental and which spins at the speed of light. Be careful when leaving the road ...



1981 ... once again, paradoxically, the sung title of the year will not be classified, go figure. We will largely be satisfied with it !



1982 ... single title year but of certain quality. A title which however will pass under the radar. Pity...



1983 ... then THIS title comes ! The group delivers here its Masterpiece, an amazing Dance title where everything is finally reunited: the sound, the style, the voice and the brilliant inspiration. A title that will undoubtedly remain as one of the biggest dance hits of the end of the 20th century. MO-NU-MEN-TAL !



1983 ... a decidedly exceptional 1983 year for the group with a second global mega hit in the wake. Certainly this title will not have the genius inspiration of the previous one but it largely holds up !



1983 ... paradoxically, the third title of the year will go almost completely unnoticed. Like what, everything turns up very quickly ...



1984 ... a group with a particularly ephemeral existence since already arrives the last year of activity. A 'shooting star' group which will still have left in its wake one of the biggest dance hits of the time. Many would be satisfied with it without problem !



1984 ... come on, the story is not quite over. A last title which unfortunately will not change much and which serves as an end to this great adventure ...
