Dieter Bohlen and Thomas Anders formed the successful disco-pop duo in 1983. Their collaboration did not survive the 1980s, but their international success is pretty much unmatched.

While critics raved against their lowbrow disco hit-machine, their albums sold and sold and sold. Result: numerous Platin records.

Due to tensions between Bohlen and Anders the band split up in 1987. In the late 1990s they surprised the public with a successful reunion.
