Joined on their first album, "Postaeolian Train Robbery", by drummer Robert Dartsch, bassist Alain Goutier and keyboardist Charles Loos.
In 1976, they released "Viva Boma", which is generally considered by fans to be their masterpiece. Each of the following albums having it’s own unique sound; "Babel" emphasizing Pascale’s vocals and featuring funk/disco beats; Swiss Chalet sounding more new wave, while expressing an african feel.
