Starship is an American group formed in 1985, directly descended from the late "Jefferson Airplane" and the late "Jefferson Starship".
Their first album "Knee deep in the Hoopla" was released the same year. Two major hits will be extracted, namely "We built this city" and the sublime "Sara". As well as two minor hits, "Tomorrow doesn’t matter tonight" and "Before I go".
In 1987, the flagship single "Nothing’s gonna stop us now" which appeared in the soundtrack of the film "Mannequin" was released. The title is a huge success.
Little followed by the album "No protection" which will be extracted in addition to the previous 2 other singles that are "It’s not over" and "Beat patrol". Singles who will have an honest journey in the Charts.
These will be the group's latest successes despite the 1989 release of the album "Love among the cannibals".
The album's promotional tour will also turn out to be a matter of settling scores between certain members, to the point that some will come to blows.
Signing the inevitable decline of the group.
Starship may not be the best-known American band, but will still have produced beautiful musical nuggets which it would have been a shame to overlook.
To discover or rediscover. Absolutely!

1985... first single and...first planetary mega hit. We could not dream of a better start for this small group out of nowhere and which from the 1st title allows himself to integrate directly the court of the Great. And how !
1985 ... the WONDER ! They reoffend in stride and offer themselves a second HUGE planetary hit. Unquestionably one of the most beautiful songs of the 80s. MAS-TER-FUL !
1986 ... after the first 2 sumptuous titles, the sequel looks more complicated than expected. Small air hole despite a title with more than certain quality ...
1986 ... definitely, the year 1986 is nothing like the previous year. Success desperately flees from the group ...
1987 ... it was important not to underestimate them. They operate here a resounding return thanks to THIS title which will remain as the biggest success of all their discography. But also one of the biggest hits of the decade. HU-GE !
1987 ... extremely difficult to compete with the previous gem. Small planetary hit but hit anyway. It's already that !
1987 ... the least prestigious of the 3 hits of this exceptional year for the group. We will be largely satisfied...
1987 ... a title which will not be classified but once again with certain quality. A constant with them ... I speak of quality of course !
1988 ... another magnificent Intimist title of which they have the secret. A decidedly extraordinary talent in this area !
1989 ... the last notorious hit. On a base this time 1000 % rock. North American rock so typical of this decade
1989 ... an inspiration that hardly falters despite the weight of the years. Even if success in the Charts is in free fall, talent is still in order !
1991 ... they will attempt the transition to the 90s but it will unfortunately be lost, the delay in competition is now unstoppable. They will still sign a last hit to end the adventure in style. What more !
2013...we thought the case was definitely over and here they are again more than 20 years later, who would have thought possible. A return for the less unexpected and which will necessarily delight the basic fans...
2013...not only are they coming back but what they offer is far from devoid of interest. But why didn't they come back sooner...?
2014...the only problem is that their absence was so long that no one noticed that they came back. Really unfortunate...
2016...will this title be the last ? Difficult to answer because we now know that with them, everything is always possible. To be continued...
