Clips :


1979 ... the beginnings kitsch at will, it almost borders on caricature. Really Too much. But that's also the 70s !



1983 ... finished DISCO, welcome to the world of Dance. With the key a small resumption of the title of Simon & Garfunkel dating from 1970. Why not ...



1984 ... then arrives the HUGE title which will make him enter One Shot in the musical legend of the 80s. Which will surely remain as his most emblematic title. MAS-TER-FUL !



1985 ... necessarily hard to do as well as before. A suite that looks a little pale. Inevitably, when you reach the top of the mountain, you are forced to descend inevitably ...



1985 ... a year that ends in style with this totally surreal clip. Again, we graze the caricature. A constant with him ...



1986 ... this one is also quite in the strikethrough style. Total excess, total exuberance. It's the character who wants that, we won't do it again, that's clear !



1986 ... pure Italo Disco juice as we like. Well, on the clip side, it does not work out, still as crossed out. We will therefore focus mainly on music ...



1987 ... Dance, Dance, Dance. A constant at home since its inception and which has been, from start to finish, its trademark !



1988 ... new heavy gauge hit. Another one of its most emblematic titles. A career not that bad in the end !



1988 ... of course, some pieces will not go down in history as Masterpieces, but hey, the main thing is to participate as they say ...



1989 ... in House mode to finish, story of. And my faith, it balances all that. But the guy has reached his limits unfortunately ...
