Not much interesting information about G.I. Orange other than the fact that it is an English group formed in 1983 by brothers Karl, Simon and Mark Whitworth, a trio to which will be added Gary Holt.
A group that will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Fight away the lover", single released in 1985.
For that reason alone, we had to devote this article to them.
To discover or rediscover.
Discography (among others ...) :
Fight away the lover 1985
Psychic magic 1985
Two hearts beat under one roof 1985
Chance of survival 1985
One good kiss 1985
The whole land is sleeping tonight 1985
Take me to your leader 1986
1985 ... just a single title, THIS title, was enough to bring the group into the musical history of the 80s. Certainly through the back door but it's always better than nothing as they say !
1985 ... a group that will have passed 'through' as they say but it must be said that faced with excessive competition, difficult to find a place in the sun
1985 ... a 'shooting star' group that will have passed through the 80s sky at the speed of light. One more will you tell me because like them, there will have been a lot ...
1985 ... anyway, the group will not be unworthy, far from it. Nothing extraordinary about them but a good job, quite simply. Isn't that the main thing ?
1985 ... a nice 'good-natured' style but which somewhat forced them to play supporting roles from start to finish. Hard law of the trade ...
1985 ... most of the production of titles will have been concentrated on the year 1985. A flash career but which will have allowed them all the same to exist for a time or little at the highest level ...
1986 ... an adventure which will not go further than the year 1986. Two short years and then go away. Anyway, they will have managed to make people talk about them, that's already it !
