Forgotten Pop! – This Week – Caught In The Act

Welcome to the article where we celebrate pop groups that you may of completely forgot about their music or may not of heard of them before and want to listen to something new! Today we look at a boyband that were half English and half Dutch and whilst they had a lot of their success mostly in Central Europe, its still interesting to look at their career.

Caught In The Act was made up of Eloy de Jong, Benjamin Boyce, Lee Baxter and Bastiaan Ragas and they formed in 1992. Between 1992 and 1994 they released three singles ‘Hey You’ ‘Gonna Make U Smile’ and ‘Take Me To The Limit’. Out of those only Take Me To The Limit charted in Netherlands at number 46. Their first official hit was in 1995 and that is when things start to change.

‘Love is everywhere’ and went to number 10 in Germany, number 8 in Switzerland and number 14 in Netherlands. This instant success lead them to appear on the German soap opera Gute Zeiten, schlechte Zeiten. Their debut album. Was called ‘… Of Love’ and it was the home of ‘My arms Keep Missing You’ ‘Let This Love Begin’ ‘You Know’ that all had relatively good success.

One of their most sucessful albums was their second one which was called Forever Friends which was the home of singles such as ‘Don’t Walk Away’ ‘Ain’t Just Another Love Story’ and ‘Bring Back the Love’.

The band went on to release two more albums in the nineties one called Vibe which was released in 1997 and We Belong Together: 6 Years Of Success’ which was a greatest hits album. This ended up being the last album by the band with the original line up and they suddenly broke up in 1998. Even though they broke up they released one more album called Solo 4 C.I.T.A So today so lets have a look at some of their music.
