Livin' Joy

In 1994, fronted by American lead singer Janice Robinson, they hit number one on the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with "Dreamer." The song turned out to be a mild sleeper hit on pop radio, finally entering the Hot 100 in early 1995. It peaked at number 72 and spent seventeen weeks on the chart. The song had a more successful run on the Official UK singles charts, hitting the number one spot after being re-issued (its original run in late 1994 had taken it to #18).

Extrema

Extrema are not just another Italian Heavy Metal band, they are Italian heavy Metal! The band, driven by the crunchingly abrasive guitars and energetic personality of Tommy Massara, came to light During the cold Milanese Winter of 86. However the definitive line-up (Mattia Bigi on Bass, Christiano Dalla Peligrino on Drums and GianLuca Perotti on Vocals) was not set in stone until 1989. There then came, after some initial hardships and a spell in the U.
