1983...then comes THIS title ! Which will undoubtedly remain as their reference title, all in a totally improbable style for the time but that will not prevent them from staying in history with, like what. HU-GE !

1984...a shooting star group that will remain in the musical history of the 80s for only one title. But better that than nothing at all as they say...

1984...he was certain that with such a style and sound it was almost mission impossible to last for decades and decades. In any case, we will be largely satisfied with the little produced...
