At the peak of pop-punk music in the early 80s there was born and built up a known British trio «Bananarama». It is interesting that at the beginning of their music career trio members could not play any musical instrument so, their debut performances in English clubs were without accompaniment - only a cappella. However, they were helped by a popular DJ Harry Crawly in cooperation with whom girls recorded their first studio single. A song titled «Ai A Mwana» became a success of the band, entering charts, as well as interested London Records label.
«Bananarama» signed a contract with London Records in 1982 and the same year trio members represented their real hit - a composition titled «It Ain’t What You Do, It's The Way That You Do It». This song allowed them to establish them a reputation as a powerful and perspective young band and already in a year that paid off - «Bananarama» works were estimated at their true worth by American music lovers.
Introduction to the American market was accompanied with a release of a debut album «Deep Sea Skiving» that included all studio singles of «Bananarama». After the band was talked about at another continent, girls summoned their strength and recorded another several new songs called-for in Europe as well as in the USA. By this time the singers almost got rid of the "punk"-component in their works focusing mostly at classical "pop" of the 80s.
However, the work stalled because of inexperience of a young group and absence of any concert activity that, as practice shows, is an obligatory success component of a newcomer artist. Weak activity of «Bananarama» resulted in the fact that in 1985 there appeared rumours about possible extinction of the band notwithstanding that its members were continuing to win the laurels of the previous successful projects.
Perhaps, the band would sink into oblivion, was it not for entrepreneurial spirit of producers who got down to «Bananarama» in real earnest and in 1986 girls recorded a cover-version of a song «The Venus». This work became the band's trademark on an international scale and the album «True Confessions», having entered American top charts, restored the former glory of the band.
However, it didn't last for a long time – in 1987, one of the band's singers, who had married, left the group and thereby «Bananarama» trio turned into a duet. Girls continued to release albums and record songs many of which became the hits however, by the middle of the 90s «Bananarama» activity fizzled out for years. An album released in 1996 became the last new album in their career. Records released at the beginning of a new millennium are mostly compilations of the compositions of previous years.
