Midnight Star: Anyone remember this group?

Midnight Star: Anyone remember this group?

freakazoids...robots...please report to the dance floor
I remember my mother telling this group was from Louisville. That's not 100% true. They actually formed the band on the campus of Kentucky State University, a historic black university in Frankfort KY. I actually remember having one of their albums.
Most of their songs were dance songs with electronic beats and sound effects. I can see the wave of electronic music from the 90s being influenced by their songs. Check out some of their hits below.

This group was slammin', I was listening to them back then in the 80's a lot. Especially "Midas Touch", "Wet My Whistle", "Headlines" and "Engine No 9" and "Luv-U-Up" were my favourites.

They're often overlooked when people talk about the 80s. I am not sure why because their sound is pure 80s.
