Hand in hand

Very little interesting information about Shatoo except the fact that it is a Norwegian group originally composed of Dag Brandht, Calle Marcussen and Øyvind Haavik. Three members who are between 15 and 17 years old...!

Group which will remain mainly in the musical history of this end of the 20th century for the high-caliber Single "A true story (The hall)" which will be released in 1987.

For this reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.

To discover or rediscover...

Tracks :

1987...the debut with finesse. Nice beginnings but which show all the same that there is still a little work to be done by these very young artists before they can join the big leagues...

1987...and the work will quickly bear fruit since the group will produce here what will undoubtedly remain as his most accomplished title. HU-GE !

1987...the group's career will be short-lived to say the least Two little years and then goes away...

1987...a group which will not remain as the best known in the Scandinavian sphere but which is far from deserving, that's clear. The proof with this new title...

1987 ... anyway, in just two years they will prove that they had everything to do great things. Fate will not have given them the time unfortunately...

1987...especially since they were good at everything from fastest to slowest. Versatility of style that could - and should - have taken them far, even very far...

1988... only 2 albums on the clock but 2 albums of certain quality. We will largely be satisfied with this union minimum in any case...

1988...a group surely too young to be able to fight on equal terms with the competition. Competition that is older and better equipped to last over time...

1988 ... the adventure will not go further than this year 1988. The group will have just missed the little boost of fate that could have changed everything ...

2013...when we thought we would never see them again, here they are back in a totally unexpected way in this new decade of 2010. Who would have thought possible...?'s the basic fans who will inevitably be delighted with this return in which they no longer believed. Like what, in music, everything is always possible..., will this title be the last ? Knowing that with them nothing is ever over at first sight, so we can imagine that we might see them again later...
