lol I remember them, but I never bought anything. I remember the news-story breaking that they weren't really singing on their records, they were just a facade for Frank Farian and his band of session musicians. That revelation didn't surprise me because Frank had worked like that for years. What did surprise me is they chose to press their own self-distruct button by 'coming out' instead of just rolling with it.
I also remember Rob Pilatus' death in 1998, ironically enough on the eve of a promotional tour for a new album produced by Farian, but this time with Pilatus and Fab Morvan genuinely on vocals. Shame. I can't remember if the album was ever posthumously released.

The Marxist pop star, if ever there was.
Wood Beez on 12 inch vinyl is a monumental moment in modern music. Well, it felt like that thirty years ago. Haven't played it much since then.
Tinseltown to the Boogiedown (late 90s, I think, was great too).
Not got any Milli Vanilli, but if we are having a confessional then I have to admit that whilst looking through my CDs the other day, I noticed the CD directly before my Rolling Stones was Robson & Jerome > The fact that it belongs to my wife is no excuse.
