Formed by Patrick De Witte, rock-journalist for the magazine Humo, former member
of the Misters.
Essentially a "good-time" & "Party"-band of the late
1980's, who have cheered up many a town-festival and mini-concert. The album "Living
in Limbo" is the only time they succeeded in capturing the spirit of the
band on record.
Or as it is said in "Wit-lof from Belgium" : "The real force
of the Skyblasters were the live performances, a reputation that brought the group
to the smallest festival podia in 88 and 89. Good times, no blah-blah about Jah
and - very exceptional for a reggae group - usually on time, on the right stage,
in the right town."
In 1990, the group splits up a the biggest part of the members join again in
a more pop-oriented group : The Wooden Horses.
Singer of the band Eduard Buadee later on tried a solo career. Although "Mama
Africa" became a summertime hit, he didn't grasp the attention of the masses
