Opera electronica...




Data is an English group formed in 1980 by Georg Kajanus who will recruit two sisters, Francesca and Philippa Boulter. Two sisters with illustrious names in England since they are the daughters of English tenor John Boulter...


Group which released a first album "Opera electronica" in 1981, album which will be highlighted thanks to the title which will be used for the film 'Towers of Babel'.


New album "2 time" two years later, an album that will go much more unnoticed than its predecessor.


It was the turn of the album "Elegant machinery" to be released in 1985, an album which would strongly influence the Swedish duo of the same name, which precisely owes its group name to this album.


An adventure that will unfortunately end with the production of this 3rd and therefore last opus...


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1980...a first title with a certain quality and which shows above all that this group has potential. It remains to be seen what he will do with this famous potential...



1980...a sound and a style really typical of the very beginning of the 80s. The fundamentals are good, that's for sure, but the inspiration is somewhat lacking on this one...



1981...it's already a little better on this track. The potential is there, the inspiration too when it wants to work well, all that remains is to produce THE title that will succeed in setting them apart from the crowd...



1981 ... certainly the group will not remain as the most gifted of its generation but he has everything it takes to produce at least 1 title of notorious interest ...



1981...let's give them a little more time, there is a time when they will succeed in finding the solution. We can trust them, that's for sure...



1981...a first part of his career which at least had the merit of showing the group in power slowly but surely. So we imagine that the best is yet to come...



1983... it will have just been enough to give them 2 more years and here is THE title which will finally bring them a semblance of recognition. It's only fair reward for all the effort. HU-GE !



1983... the sequel is a slight notch below but nothing to worry about at this stage. They will produce other high-caliber titles, at least we hope so...



1983...a pivotal 1983 vintage that rhymes with an evolution in style and an obvious sound. The next opus could therefore be that of full maturity...



1985...return two years later in what we would call certain form. It remains to be seen what they will offer us with this new opus...



1985...this album will undoubtedly remain the most accomplished overall. He won't produce a major title but the quality is definitely there anyway...



1985...a pity that this group remained in the shadow of the Greats because he is far from unworthy, that's clear. He will just have missed the little help of fate that could have made all the difference...



1985...the advantage of these articles is to bring to light precisely these groups which will not have been able - or known - to capture the light more than that. It's done now...



1985... a certain talent which expresses itself once again through this title. The career of the group will not exceed the year 1986 but he surely does not have to be ashamed of all that he will have produced, quite the contrary...



1986...a great adventure that will end here. The group would have frankly deserved to go a little further but such is the life as they say...
