Olive followed his road, listened to the Sex Pistols and in 77, met Violaine then Korin the following year. 1978 saw the first version of the group Lili Drop together with Lionel Lumbroso. It was necessary to wait the end of 79 to hear the group's hit single 'On my mob', a true hymn to liberty. The adventure ended in 83 with one last concert at the Printemps de Bourges.
Olive put out one single and turned solo in 86 after contributing to various concerts and albums. Beautiful Tanned was produced by Richard Kolinka of Téléphone but the album was lost in the "oubliettes" of promotion. In 88, Olive reformed Lili Drop, for a concert at the Mutuality in Paris. The 90s didn't smile for him despite two more albums.
In 2005, Olive prepared his return under the name of Lovliv. In June 16 they performed a concert at the Point Ephémère under the name of Lili Drop, with a new formation. Jean-Louis Aubert, his long time friend, evoked Olive in a recent interview for the French newspaper Liberation (29/11/2006) remembering a trip that they had undertaken in the 70s: "15 years ago, someone had predicted for him : "Your buddy will be successful, for you, on the other hand, it will be harder." We were the two sides of the same coin." Valérie Passelègue Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
