De groep werd opgericht in 1972 en bestond uit: zangeres/organiste Margriet Eshuijs, bassist Dick Buijsman, drummer Henny Huisman en zanger/percussionist Julio Wilson. In 1975 scoorden ze een grote hit met House for sale. Later, toen de band minder succes had, ging Margriet Eshuijs verder met een solocarrière.

Begin 1976 werden Henny Huisman, Julio Wilson door gitarist Fred Berger en drummer Jan Pijnenburg. De drie ex-leden vormden vervolgens de band Match (= Engels voor lucifer).

In 1979 werd de groep opgeheven en ging Margriet Eshuijs solo waarna ze nog 1 Top 40 scoorde met Black pearl (1982).


The sun went up one rainy morning just a couple of hours after dawn
Mrs. Hadley peeked out through her curtains, wondering what was going on
The neighbours said over coffee cups, that nice young couple is breaking up

In the living room the linen and the crystal sit all packed and set to go
I tell myself once more I won't be here in spring to see my roses grow
And all the things you tried to fix, the roof still leaks, the door still sticks

House for Sale
You can read it on the sign
House for Sale
It was yours and it was mine
And tomorrow some strangers will be climbing up the stairs
To the bedroom filled with memories
The one we used to share

I know you always loved that painting
From that funny little shop in Spain
Remember how we found it
When we duckted in from that sudden summer rain
But I think I'll keep the silver tray
My mother gave us on our wedding day

House for Sale...
