‘Til Tuesday is an American group formed in Boston in 1983 and composed of Aimee Mann, Robert Holmes, Joey Pesce and Michael Hausman. Group which begins to make speak about him after having won the same year the WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble organized by the radio station WBCN of Boston.
It is notably thanks to the first version of "Love in a vacuum" that the group wins and in the process obtains a contract with Epic Records.
But the real take off did not come until two years later in 1985 with the release of the album "Voices Carry" which produced the single of the same name. A single that will be a worldwide hit, in particular thanks to a particularly inspired clip that will also allow them to win the award for best clip of the year on MTV.
New album "Welcome home" a year later in 1986. Album with less success despite quite rave reviews and which will all the same produce the top hit "What about love".
The group will release a third - and last - album "Everything's different now" in 1988. An album that will also be popular with critics but unfortunately not with the public. A failure that will permanently seal the fate of the group which will end up separating shortly after.
To discover or rediscover.

1985 ... first title and first notable success. A startling to say the least, which positions the group as one of the big discoveries of the year. HU-GE !
1985 ... the group confirms all the good that we thought of him. Even if this title will not have the same level of success as its predecessor, it shows in any case that this group really has talent !
1985 ... a year 1985 particularly contrasted with titles which break the house and others which go completely unnoticed. This will be part of the 2nd category. Go figure ...
1986 ... luckily business resumed the following year. It was impossible for the group to fall back into the depths of oblivion after such an encouraging start ...
1987 ... the group will have produced few titles in the end but each time with more than certain quality. A group that will not remain as the best known on the other side of the Atlantic but with talent among the best of its generation !
1988 ... a group which frankly deserved to last but which will only remain at the top of the bill for 4 short years in the end. Frankly shame ...
1988 ... the last single. A last title which will pass completely under the radar and which marks the end of a most honorable adventure and which will have produced several singles of very big caliber. It's already that !
