Clips :

1980 ... the beginnings. A sound that smacks of amateurism and shows that there is still a little work to do. Let's be patient ...

1981 ... the sound has evolved somewhat, that's clear. Well, on the melodic side, we are far from divine inspiration but it will come ...

1983 ... a fresh and light track which shows that they are rather on the right track. We are slowly but surely approaching the High Level...

1985 ... the year of takeoff. The group finally seems to have found its style and sound. We therefore imagine that the best is yet to come ...

1986 ... then comes THIS title. A title with more than certain inspiration and which shows that the group is finally mature. HU-GE !

1986 ... the title of consecration, finally. A first classified title which proves that we had to rely on them. And it's not over !

1986 ... a beautiful year 1986 with a succession of high caliber titles. The group shows the full extent of its talent and talent, there is !

1986 ... the biggest success of their career. On an indefinable style, half folk, half country, half pop. A completely improbable mixture that definitely sets them apart from the competition ...

1987 ... the rest is good but difficult to find the extraordinary inspiration of the previous year. Can and must do better ...

1990 ... years have passed without much happening. Here they are again at the dawn of the new decade and the least we can say is that this break has done them the greatest good. A comeback in great shape which allows them to sign this title which will remain as one of their most successful ...

1990 ... all smoothly and with finesse, what better way to end the adventure in the best possible way. Admittedly, this group will not remain as the most famous of the decade but will nevertheless have left in the musical history of the 80s titles of more certain quality
