Kajagoogoo, formerly "Art Nouveau", is an English group created in 1981 with the arrival of Christopher Hamill, better known as Limalh. It was in 1982 that the group released the single that changed everything, namely "Too shy". Single which propels them directly at the head of the English top and in a very good place in the American Top. Apart from the undeniable quality of the single, it is also the look of the singer Limalh - more particularly the haircut - which will immediately focus the attention of the media of all kinds but even more of the fans. "Hang on now" was released in 1983, a high quality single as well. Unfortunately, friction arises within the group and it explodes quickly, Limalh preferring to start a solo career. The group will continue under the name of "Kaja", will release other singles with more or less certain success and will end up separating definitively in 1986. To discover or rediscover.

1983 ... the intergalactic hit that will smash everything in its path and make them enter One Shot in the musical legend of the 80s. Surely one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade. For a first title, it is literally MO-NU-MEN-TAL !
1983 ... the sequel is of quality but cannot in any way compete with the previous gem. The group set the bar so high from the start that everything else will suffer from the comparison
1983 ... new title of very very large caliber which allows the group to become one of the biggest phenomena of the moment. A largely deserved status !
1983 ... second mega planetary hit the same year, a real feat for a small group out of nowhere. Will they keep pace, not on ...
1984 ... for now, it's a sequel to hits that nothing and no one can stop. Undeniably one of the most gifted groups of its generation !
1984 ... a particularly prolific year, rich in pieces of choice. This title will not be classified but largely holds the road !
1984 ... the last notorious hit. And yes, already ! A 'shooting star' group which nevertheless had all the potential to last for years and years ...
1985 ... a melodic quality among the best of the moment but that will not have been enough to make the group last. The departure of Limalh will unfortunately seal the fate of the latter ...
1985 ... a last for the road. Another high-class title for a final worthy of the group's enormous talent !
2008 ... when we thought the case was definitely folded, here they are back almost 25 years later. A totally unexpected rebirth...
2008...certainly, the album will pass somewhat unnoticed but it is far from being uninteresting. Too bad they took so long to do it because he could have put them back in the race a little bit...
2008 ... we will be satisfied with it largely anyway. It remains to be seen whether they will be able to do it again in the years to come...
Top bonus: 2005...a final attempt at reunification...
