Stubborn kind of fellows...




Not much news about Fat Larry’s Band other than the fact that it is an American group that will go down mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Act like you know" released in 1982.

Clips :


1976 ... an adventure that starts off ideally with a first classified title. Rather a good omen for the rest of the events ...



1976 ... and 2 ! Two titles classified for a first year of existence, this is called a rather flattering balance sheet. It remains to be seen now what they will propose next ...



1977 ... a versatility of styles which shows that this group really has everything to succeed. After the Dance, here comes the Big Caliber Intimist. What more !



1979 ... success is now global. After a year 1978 when not much will happen, the group is back in force with this title. Winning return as they say !



1979 ... a year 1979 which will prove to be absolutely exceptional for the group. Their level of inspiration is at the top and it shows. Especially it gets along !



1979 ... third success and the year is not over, that is to say. Everything succeeds them with obvious ease and it is set to last like that for a few more years ...



1980 ... they alternate with an obvious mastery Dance titles and Intimist titles. A know-how that is only found among the best, necessarily ...



1982 ... slump in 1981 and return to Olympic form in this new year 1982. So much so that they sign here the biggest success of all their discography and at the same time offer themselves a direct ticket for the posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !



1982 ... 1979 was an exceptional year but it was 1982 that was to consecrate them definitely. Thanks to this title which will not equal its predecessor but which proves in a striking way that they have absolutely their place in the court of the Greatest !



1983 ... after reaching the heights, it is clear that we can only go back down. But the descent will be smooth, that's already it ...



1983 ... a year 1983 which saw them maintain a level of success sufficient to remain among the best. The essential is preserved as they say ...



1983 ... three big caliber titles for 1983 alone, what more could you ask for. Unfortunately, the rest will be much less favorable to them ...



1986 ... big hole of 3 years and especially back in a very average shape. Insufficient form to maintain itself at the highest level anyway. A poor performance from which they unfortunately will not recover ...
