Gold rush...

Not much information about Parade Ground except that it is a Belgian group formed in 1981 by brothers Jean-Marc and Pierre Pauly.

A group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Gold rush" released in 1987.

As such alone, we had to devote this article to them.

To discover or rediscover.

1987 ... the group will evolve very little from start to finish. A course of action that will inevitably marginalize them and irremediably ...

1987 ... they will still have delivered some interesting titles including this one. A sound and a tempo that sticks well to the expectations of the public, what more could you ask for. Like what, when they want !

1988 ... an improvement for the general public which unfortunately did not last long. Even if this title does not lack interest, it is clear that the group is recovering its fundamentals here ...

1988 ... anyway, the end of the decade sees the group more than inspired than at the beginning of the decade, it's clear. Hope it lasts ...

1988 ... an adventure which lasted only a few years but which at least had the merit of highlighting this talented group. A group that unfortunately failed to win at the highest level ...
