About Baltimora

Baltimora were an Italian New Wave dance outfit active in the mid to late 1980s. The group comprised Jimmy McShane (frontman/vocals), Maurizio Bassi (keyboards, vocals), Giorgio Cocilovo (lead guitar), Claudio Bazzari (rhythm guitar), Pier Michelatti (bass guitar) and Gabriele Melotti (drums). They are best known for their 1985 hit single 'Tarzan Boy'. Jimmy McShane of Derry, Northern Ireland, was the frontman of the group. Some sources state lead vocals were performed by Maurizio Bassi (with Jimmy actually providing the backing vocals), including lead vocals on their biggest hit 'Tarzan Boy' despite the fact that McShane lip synched while appearing in the 'Tarzan Boy' music video and not Bassi, who was also the group's keyboardist although this still remains uncertain.
