Images is a French group formed in Toulouse in 1986 and originally composed of Mario Ramsamy, Jean-Louis Pujade and Christophe Desprès.
Not much news about them except that they will remain famous of course for their intergalactic hit "Midnight Demons". Flagship single of their discography which will remain No.1 of the French Top50 for 13 consecutive weeks !
They will have two other hits with "Corps à corps" released in 1987 and "Maitresse" released in 1988. All her hits were taken from their first album "L’album d´images" which was released in 1987.
The other albums produced subsequently will not experience the same level of success as this particularly accomplished opus. And it will take the arrival of Emile Wandelmer in 1999, from the group Gold, to give some semblance of life to the group.
A salutary rebirth amplified in the 2000s thanks to the Stars 80 tour which puts the group back at the forefront of the French music scene.
In any case, the group will have left in the musical history of the 20th century a dance piece of anthology. Piece that still continues to set fire to many private parties and weddings all over France. And this for the greatest pleasure of all those nostalgic for this blessed time.
To discover or rediscover.

1986 ... which will surely remain as one of the biggest dance hits of all time on the French side. The group signs here an absolutely sensational entry and returns One Shot in the musical legend of the 80s. Masterfully MAS-TER-FUL !
1987 ... the group definitively imposes with this 2nd title an inimitable style which will forever remain its trademark. Of course, this title will not have the same level of success as its predecessor but to compete with it was literally impossible as the bar is high !
1987 ... the group shows an astonishing versatility that one did not necessarily expect. They temporarily abandon pure and hard Dance for this beautiful foray into the Intimist domain. A sumptuous Ultimate Slow that once again shows the full extent of their talent
1988 ... very simple titles with formidable effectiveness. They signed their second biggest success here, all in a schoolboy and festive atmosphere. What more !
1988 ... and always those melodies that hit the mark. A group of constantly renewed inspiration that will remain as one of the very best of its generation
1990 ... after a completely euphoric 1980s, the 1990s will prove to be much more complicated than expected to manage. Difficult to renew in a decade where everything is accelerating. And this despite a title quality still high level ...
1990 ... back to the Intimist. Once again, a particularly accomplished track which literally floats in the air. But that will not be enough to put the group back in the race ...
1991 ... the group tries to stick to the new standards of the time. But suddenly, he loses his soul and gets lost ...
1993 ... a new attempt which will not change the situation. Difficult to compete with a competition of little youngsters whose music spins at the speed of light ...
