An early West Coast ska band which mixed R&B covers with reggae rhythms and recorded with England's Stiff Records, the Untouchables debuted in 1984 with Live & Let Dance.
The group comprised of vocalist Chuck Askerneese, guitarist and vocalist Clyde Grimes, bassist Derek Breakfield, keyboard player Brewster, and an alternating crew of percussionists and horn players. They recorded Wild Child in 1985 but after the 1986 EP Dance Party, the Untouchables were silent for several years. Finally, 1989's Agent Double O Soul appeared, with the Edwin Starr soul nugget covered therein. The 1990 live album Decade of Dance was the group's last. ~ John Bush, Rovi
