Images In Vogue is a Canadian group formed in 1981 in Vancouver and originally composed of Dale Martindale, Don Gordon, Joe Vizvary, Glen Nelson, Gary Smith and Kevin Crompton.
Group which knows a first success two years later in 1983 with the single "Lust for love".
Their first album "In the house" was released in 1985, an album which will experience its heyday mainly with the single of the same name.
New album named "The spell" in 1988, album which will meet only modest success.

1983 ... this title will pass somewhat 'through' but allows the group to continue its adventure somehow. Isn't that the main thing ...
1984 ... business resumes with this title. Of course, they will never reach the top places in the Charts, but what they offer largely holds up !
1984 ... too bad they didn't break through more than that because they had everything they needed for. But like a certain number of Canadian colleagues, they will have remained in the shadow of the greatest, whether English or American ...
1985 ... once again the proof of a know-how more than certain. The inspiration is there, as is the style. They really won't have missed much to compete on equal terms with the best ...
