They only need 8 seconds...

Eight Seconds is a Canadian band formed in 1982 in Ottawa and made up of Andrés de Castillo, March Cesare, Frank Levin, Scott Milks and Marc Parent.

The fate of the group changed in 1983 when they won a competition organized by CHEZ FM radio, the first prize of which was the production of a music video for the winning song.

This is how the track "Where’s Bula" will suddenly find its way onto MuchMusic and MTV and thus obtain an unexpected audience.

But it wasn't until 1986 that the band really took off with the release of the album "Almacantar", which produced their first big hit with the flagship track "Kiss you (When it’s dangerous)". And which also contains the excellent "Call and a cry", "Land of the monster" and "Commissioner street".

And it will take four more years to see the release of their second album "Big Houses", less successful and which will be extracted mainly the single hit "Tell Diane".

And who will be their last because their label will disappear shortly after and them with. Too bad because the group frankly deserved to go even further.

To discover or rediscover.

1986 ... a little musical interlude with this piece that spins at 200 km/h. Not easy to follow ...

1986 ... another excellent title which shows their high level of inspiration. Like what, it is not only the English and the Americans in the Anglo-Saxon sphere to make good music at that time ...

1988 ... not much to eat in 1987. On the other hand, in 1988, it is a winning return with this title which works very well
