Male stripper - Man 2 Man meets Man Parrish
Under this name the band scored their biggest hit, 'Male Stripper', teaming up with cult electro producer Man Parrish. Originally released in the United Kingdom in 1986 on the Bolts Records label, 'Male stripper' was a big club hit throughout the autumn and peaked at number 64 on the UK Singles Chart. In early 1987, the single charted again in the UK, and this time the song became an even bigger hit, spending five weeks in the Top 10 and two weeks at number 4. This success was barely seen by group member Miki Zone, who had died of spinal meningitis caused by AIDS on December 31, 1986.
