Real McCoy Mini Biography

>> Friday, February 27, 2009



Real McCoy, originally known as M.C. Sar & The Real McCoy, is a German band, best known for their 1994/1995 singles "Another Night" and "Run Away", which were both Top 10 hits in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Real McCoy was the brainchild of German rapper and producer Olaf "O-Jay" Jeglitza. After having released a few limited edition 12" singles in Germany under the name "The Alliance" with friend Frank "Quickmix" Hassas, their first major breakthrough came in December 1989 when a cover of the Technotronic hit "Pump Up The Jam" went to #16 on the German singles chart.

At this point, the act was faceless so for the second single, the original track "It's On You", singer Patsy Petersen and 'rapper' Shampro were enlisted to join the group. O-Jay felt uncomfortable being the frontman so Shampro mimed O-Jay's raps. The single, on its release in 1990, climbed to #11 in Germany. An album "On The Move" was also released.
