In 1980 Jan-Paul Driessen and Rob Taekema formed the Dutch disco group Fruitcake. Due to Jan-Paul's brother [a=Ellert Driessen] from [a=Spargo], record labels are interested in the group. Although their first single 'My Feet Won't Move' gets to #8 in the Dutch Top40, the rest of the singles are less succesful. In 1984 the band stops, leaving the world 2 albums.
