The real politics of dance....




Re-Flex is an English band formed in 1981 and originally composed of John Baxter and Paul Fishman. Which will be joined quickly by François Craig, John Hodges and Phil Gould.


The band released their debut album "The Politics of Dancing" two years later in 1983 and the least we can say is that for a debut album, it was particularly successful. In particular thanks to the enormous single of the same name which will make a real worldwide hit and explode the notoriety of the group overnight.


Album which will produce 5 other singles but only 3 out of the 5 will experience an honorable success including "Hurt" released in 1983, as well as "Praying to the beat" and "Couldn't stand a day" released as for them in 1984.


Unfortunately, the group was unable to capitalize on the enormous success of their debut album and the next album "Humanication" which was released two years later in 1985 was a failure. Album which will produce only one single "How much longer", which will go almost completely unnoticed ...


A failure from which the group will not recover with an outright disappearance ...


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1983 ... one title, THIS title, was enough to make One Shot fit the group into the musical legend of the 80s. Here they quite simply sign one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade and become de facto one of the biggest phenomena of the moment. MAS-TER-FUL !



1983 ... unbelievable as it may seem, the group will fall as quickly into oblivion as he had exploded on the front of the stage. Who would've believed that...



1983 ... they won't disappear completely from the radar but the level of success has nothing to do with what they experienced with their first title. This is called a first-order industrial accident ....



1984 ... they start their second year of existence on the hats of wheel. Not sure that overspeed is the ideal answer to find the top of the Charts ...



1984 ... how could a band with such potential miss out on a top-notch career that was reaching out to them. Only they have the answer ... or not ...



1984 ... 3 titles in this year 1984 and a very relative level of success on the 3. A story that should have been beautiful. Unfortunately, this was not the case ...



1985 ... last year of existence and especially last title. The group will not recover from its repeated failures and will disappear altogether. End of the story...
