The band was formed in 1981 and featured the extraordinary Danish guitar player Nils Tuxen, ex-Savage Rose; Romanian Michael Cretu on keyboards (who later married German Megastar Sandra), bass player Manfred ‘Tissy’ Thiers, ex-Randy Pie, and drummer Reinhard ‘Dicky’ Tarrach – formerly of the Rattles, Wonderland and Randy Pie.
However, during the “Neue Deutsche Welle” boom period, several record companies instantly rejected demo tapes of their funky, disco-orientated material. Four years later however, Moti Special achieved success when three of their high-octane dance tunes hit the German charts all within a span of nine month: ‘Cold Days, Hot Nights’ (Number 3), ‘Don’t Be So Shy’ (Number 8) and ‘Stop! Girls Go Crazy’ (Number 53). In the same year their debut album ‘Motivation’ reached Number 20. A must for all fans of the 80’s.
