The Korgis is an English group born in the late 70s, originaly composed of James Warren on vocals, Andy Davis on drums, Stuart Gordon on guitar and Phil Harrison on keyboards. It all starts when Warren and Davis meet for the first time in the Stackridge group. Unfortunately small group which sees the two accomplices leave the group quickly. And it was only 4 years later, in 1979, that they had the brilliant idea of forming "The Korgis", in reference to the dogs that the Queen loves. They released several singles that year including "If I had you" and the title immediately hit the headlines. But it is a year later that the 2nd abum will be released which contains the interstellar title "Everybody's got to learn sometime", single which will not only be their biggest success, but which can be considered today as one of the 20 most significant singles of the 1980s. The following album "Sticky George" will unfortunately not have the same success, which will cause tensions with the record company and their dismissal in the end. This will sound the death knell for this legendary group with a little known repertoire but of very good quality if we refer to what was done in those years. Warren will leave alone in the musical adventure without big success. Discography (among others ...) :

1979 ... promising beginnings that show, from the outset, the extraordinary side of the group. We immediately see the enormous potential that will reveal itself in a dazzling fashion in the years that follow ...
1980 ... and that potential, to have it, there is ! A sound and a pop-marshmallow style that do wonders, as well as the voice of Warren completely atypical with the signature so particular
1980 ... the WONDER ! A title of incredible lyrical inspiration and which will remain as one of the most beautiful Ultimate Slow of this end of the XXth century. Their Masterpiece ! MAS-TER-FUL !
1980 ... decidedly, they really don't resemble any other group of their generation and that is all their strength !
1980 ... wow, a track that spins at 200 km/h. But what is wrong with them ? Like a desire to let off steam ...
1980 ... a little unpretentious instrumental delirium against Korgis' barking funds. And why not tell me ... let's let their unbridled inspiration go
1981 ... back to serious business ! Always this incredible voice to sublimate this magnificent ballad that literally floats in the air
1981 ... another ballad of which they have the secret. Time is once again suspended ... What talent !
1982 ... only one title that year but what a title ! Surely one of their most beautiful, once again very gently ...
1985 ... we find them a few years later ... Is it the same group ...? The metamorphosis is incredible ...
1985 ... metamorphosis confirmed with a new title at a certain pace ... No more pretty ballads of yesteryear ... welcome to the world of Dance, an area that has never been their business. Despite this, they are not ridiculous, far from it ! An amazing ending ...
