The One Shot Festival - 27




An anthology of cult titles or very high quality but whose group has produced only a "One shot" or so few titles that it would have been ridiculous to devote an entire article to it.

Part 27 :

  • Deskee – Let there be house 1989

  • About 9 Times – There is no 1986

  • The Actuals – The actual 1980

  • Sheila Hylton – The bed’s too big without you 1981

  • Belle & The Devotions – Love games 1984

  • Big Sound Authority – This house (Is where your love stands) 1985

1984 ... a title and above all a group assembled from scratch to represent England at the Eurovision Song Contest that year. He will take a very honorable 7th place in the competition but will not allow the 3 girls to continue the adventure beyond ...



1985 ... we stay in England for this title which will remain as the main success of this group, to say the least ephemeral. Friendly and playful, we will largely be satisfied ...
