How it all began…• M.A.R.R.S. formed in 1987 in London.• It was an amalgamation of A.R. Kane and Colourbox. They also had additional in put from ‘CJ’ Macintosh and Dave Dorrel.• There name came from a rather clever Acronym of there forenames;• Martyn Young (from Colourbox), Alex Ayuli and Rudy Tambala (from A.R. Kane), Russell Smith (an associate A.R. Kane member and founder of Terminal Cheesecake), and Steve Young (from Colourbox).
How the magic happened…• At first it did not go well as the groups’ differing styles meant they could not agree on a certain style for there new songs.• But eventually after some squabbles they were able to come up with one disc release;• ‘Pump Up The Volume’ and a B side ‘Anitina’• In September of the same year of release and creation of the group they announced they would not be releasing any more Albums.• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGPhUr- T6UM
The After Effect…• The Group were a one hit wonder with there song ‘Pump Up The Volume’ and was the first UK number one hit to contain samples.• They were then nominated for a Grammy in 1989, but didn’t win• http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2a5Tjh10 ZM
