Clips :

1983... beginnings that were rhythmic and playful to say the least. A good mood and a freshness that will pay off since the group will land his first planetary hit here, just that !

1983...they do it again with this title and prove in a brilliant way that they are not there by chance. A dazzling success that they must now confirm over time...

1983... the pass of 3 ! Certainly this title will be the 'little' hit of the year but the group can still boast of having won the jackpot during this year 1983, it's the least we can say...

1984...change of sound the following year, a change that will not really benefit them. Everything that had their charm at the beginning flew away with this new album...

1984...we can't say that this new opus lacks interest, that's for sure. But it is above all the fact that they can no longer stand out from the crowd more than that with this reorientation of sound...

1984... frankly a pity because it really started off in an ideal way, to say the least. Like what nothing is ever acquired in the end...

1984...a dazzling career start that consumed the group's creative potential too much. They would have frankly deserved to go a little further but fate will have decided otherwise...

1984...a shooting star band that will still have left a significant mark in the musical history of the 80s. That's already it, as they say...
