Martin’s brother Stephan Eicher (Guitar) and Claudine Chirac (saxophone supplemented), the group temporarily, with live performances and recordings.

Gray area has been notified by the two pieces Polar Bear and SpaceWhich they recorded the LP in 1980 published the “Swiss Wave – The Album”. Polar Bear met the lifestyle of the time and got radio airplay in Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The song was released as a single and reached number 6 in the Austrian and German 12th place in the charts.

The group refused, however, the commercial requirements and concentrated on film and studio work.

GT and Marco Repetto regrouped with former Glueams guitarist and drummer Dominique Martin Pavlinec Uldry, first as a “Missing Link”, then under the name “Eiger North Face.” GT then switched to the Futurism style similar action group “Red Catholic Orthodox Jewish Chorus” to the performance artist Edy Marconi, in the temporarily played Marco Repetto. Later called the group “I Suonatori. Stephan Eicher launched a successful solo career. Martin Eicher 1988 published the EP “Spellbound Lovers,” a flashy, but unnoticed work.

After some changes       Eicher 1979 met Martin as a guitarist and a few months to       later by his brother Stephen, both have music experience       with the Noise Boys Project collected. You name around in Gray area and tried to expand their music concept multimedia: They complement       their instruments with synthesizers, light effects and super-8 film projections.       The editor of Punk magazine in Zurich “No Fun” Urs Staiger       is attentively at a gig on the band and brings Gray area in the       Studio to record for his Swiss Wave Sampler two pieces: “Space” and “Special”. The latter is       a large radio and Diskothekenhit in Switzerland.

1981 suggests         the label Welt-Rekord/EMI among the Swiss and by now better         Promotion and sales reached the single “Special” a Top Ten ranking in Germany. But most of all the missing         TV appearances – the band consistently refused – and ungewöhniche         Live concerts without their hits, but with much Synthiesizer improvisations         were not conducive to the success of gray areas: “If         want to hear a polar bear, he should buy the record “ so the brothers Eicher.
