T’Pau is an English group formed in 1986 in Shropshire and whose name would be a reference to one of the characters of Star Trek.
They know their first success in 1987 with the title "Heart and soul" but paradoxically, not in England but across the Atlantic.
The success across the Channel arrives a few months later with the release of the single "China in your hand" which will make him a real hit in the land of Shakespeare. And this time knowing only a success relative to the USA ...
Their first album "Bridge of spies" came out in the wake and produced two other hits that are "Valentine" and "I will be with you".
A year later in 1988 the album "Rage" was released, which despite obvious success did not reach the level of success of the previous one. Album from which the flagship single "Secret garden" will be mainly extracted.
It was not until 3 years and the year 1991 that the album "The promise" was released, which produced a last single hit "Whenever you need me", shortly before the group broke up.

1987 ... "Mane of Fire" takes its first steps very gently and for the first steps, they are particularly successful ! First title and already the first global mega hit. A start to say the least shattering as they say. HU-GE !
1987 ... the title of the consecration. And yes, already ! They simply sign here the biggest success of all their discography and especially a mega planetary hit which offers them a direct ticket for posterity. PHE-NO-ME-NAL !
1987 ... incredible fact, this title will not even be classified. Between this title there and the previous title, the difference in classification in the Charts is amazing to say the least ...
1987 ... 5 titles in a single year including 2 mega hits and 1 top hit, who says better ? Here comes the last title of an absolutely exceptional year for the group, a title that once again perfectly combines strength and softness. All simply magnificent !
1988 ... and what about that one ! Surely one of their best titles and yet this title will pass somewhat under the radars. Go figure ...
1988 ... put away the handkerchiefs, we return to pure rock hard with this title to say the least boosted. The transition is fierce as they say ...
1988 ... well, all things considered, bring them out. Return of the gentle force. And my faith, it is in this area that they are the best. So let's not sulk our pleasure !
1989 ... an incredible talent that finds its fulfillment in his ballads of very large caliber. Sumptuous !
1991 ... a change of decade perfectly mastered thanks to a melodic inspiration that never falters. Hope it lasts ...
1991 ... "Mane of Fire" at its best. Unfortunately, the rest will prove to be much more complicated to manage than expected. With words to a complete disappearance ...
1991 ... this title will not even be classified. The decline is now underway and nothing and no one will be able to stop it. Tough law of the trade ...
1998 ... this title is more anecdote than anything else. The group has completely disappeared from radars and is trying to make a totally improbable comeback. Bet lost unfortunately ...
