In 1984 they had a small taste of international success when their record "Cross my heart" made it to the American dance charts.

Together with a lot of the Belgian bands which had their 5 minutes of fame in 1983 and 1984, the group disappeared around 1985.

Frontman Marc Van Rooy started out singing together with Walter Grootaers, who later became famous as the singer of  De Kreuners. Later on, he formed the group Diver (1975-78), after that the Parking Meters, and last that I've heard from him  is that he got involved in a group called Romeo Spinelli.

Records (only singles and 12''):
- Adventures / Boys and girls (Parking records, 1981
- Shanghai express / Le cauchemar bizarre (Parsley, 1982)
- Siberean Fire / Ambigu (BMC, 1983)
