Madame X = Klymaxx
Klymaxx was one of 80's electro-funk's most sassy female group. Several top 40 hits.
When Klymax broke up Bernadette Cooper (Annie Yet Your Gun) formed Madame x(1987??) The group was awesome and every song was filled with attitude galore. Great dance tracks.....Just that Type of Girl, Flirt, I want Your Body, Madame X, and a really cool post modern slow jam,Cherries In the Snow.Unfortunately the fgroup fell apart due to poor management. Madame X, Madame X 1987 is a killer cd that is a rare find. Once in a while I see this album on Ebay selling for over $100.00. So if you find this cd, tape or album (black cover with Madame X written in red) enjoy it!
