Tokow Boys is a French group formed in 1979 and originally composed of Rachel Ortas, Eric Tabuchi, Daniel Brunetti, Franz Weisgerber and Luigi Morello.


Group which signs with the label Virgin Records, label which will allow them to release two singles "Swimming pool" and "Elle Hotesse" the following year in 1980. Singles which will unfortunately go somewhat unnoticed ...


A year later in 1981 released their one and only album “Cobra ! Cobra !". Album which also will only have a limited level of success ...


Repeated failures that will seal the fate of the group, which will eventually separate in the years that will follow. Rachel Ortas and Eric Tabuchi will leave on their side to form the group Luna Parker. Group which will know a level of success much higher than the Tokow Boys, in particular with their enormous title "Tes états d'âme Eric" in 1986.

Clips :


1980 ... the sound is trendy for a first title but the style is not really ideal for capturing the general public. Can and must do better ...



1980 ... and this is not the title that will change the situation unfortunately. Doing in the original is good. But too much wacky kills wacky ...



1980 ... there are no real improvements to be expected in this year 1980. The group remains braced on its fundamentals and is not likely to stand out from the crowd at this stage ...



1981 ... will 1981 be the year that will allow them to emerge in broad daylight ? It does not take the path at first glance ...



1981 ... the style has evolved somewhat between the two years but the wacky side remains omnipresent. A risky and above all counterproductive bias ...



1981 ... it is clear that there is very little chance that there will be a miracle. The group continues on the same path and does not intend to thoroughly review its fundamentals, let's be clear ...



1981 ... too bad because there was potential. But the group will not have known what to do with it and will have turned around the pot without knowing how to remove the cover ...



1981 ... an adventure which will have at least allowed 2 of the members of the group to break in. A break-in that will allow them to explode in a few years. But that's another story...
