Time Bandits is a Dutch group formed in 1981 by Alides Hidding, who is the singer - with a voice so special and recognizable among all - as well as the author of all the songs. The name of the group will not necessarily tell you much but the song titles surely. Titles such as "I'm specialized In You" as well as the hits "Listen To The Man With The Golden Voice" and "I'm Only Shooting Love" (which will probably go down in history as their biggest commercial success) will reveal them to the general public. And ignite the dance floors of the whole planet. With their four albums on the counter, this original and quirky group will have had great success in the end in the charts around the world.
