Just a dream...

Not much interesting info about Shooting Party other than the fact that it is an English group formed in the mid-1980s and made up of Gary Strange and Roger P Ferris.

Group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the big caliber Single "I go to pieces", single released in 1989.

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

To discover or rediscover...

Tracks :

1985 ... a first quality title which shows more than obvious potential. Afterwards, what will they do with it, that's something else ...

1985 ... the tone is trendy, as is the style. We therefore suspect that at some point all this should pay off ...

1988 ... we will still lose sight of them for 3 years. Here they are back in this year 1988 in a form that we will qualify as certain. Certain but not yet sufficient to make them pass from shadow to light ...

1989 ... this time will be the good one ! It took them 4 years to reach full maturity but the result is there, it is undeniable. They sign here the biggest success of all their discography and at the same time offer themselves a direct ticket for posterity. HU-GE !

1989 ... a year 1989 which sees them perfectly mastering their subject. This title will not have the same level of success as its predecessor but it holds up, that's clear !

1990 ... not sure that with such overspeed, this title ends up N°1 of the Charts. The duo will therefore have to review his copy, to say the least ...

1990 ... this one would already be much more suited to what the general public expects. Even if this duo will not remain as the most talented of his generation, he absolutely does not have to be ashamed of everything he has produced ...

1990 ... a BIG year 1990 with quality title on all levels. Unfortunately, that won't be enough to protect the duo from an untimely demise ...

1990 ... a duo that will not go beyond 1990. His career was short but still allowed him to leave a mark in history. Isn't that the main thing ...?

1990 ... one last little title and then it goes. We would have liked to see them go further in the adventure but fate will have decided otherwise ...
