Titanic was a rock band from Norway, which also included a British member in its line-up. It was first active from 1969 and 1979, and also reformed twice.
The group was made up of Kenny Aas, Kjell Asperud, John Lorck, Janny Loseth and Roy Robinson (lead singer). They formed in 1969, and released several successful albums and singles before disbanding in 1979. They subsequently reformed with a changed list of personnel to record 1991's CD, Lower The Atlantic.
Their main songwriters were Lorck and Loseth, with Robinson supplying the primarily English language based lyrics. In October 1971 Titanic reached Number 5 in the UK Singles Chart, with their instrumental track, "Sultana". It was performed in the style of the then popular band, Santana. The tune also appeared on their Titanic's album Sea Wolf.
However, due to a lack of other corresponding chart presence, Titanic are known as one-hit wonders.
In early 1980's, Janny Loseth went on to become lead singer for a french electronic band called Space.
In 2006, Janny Loseth and Roy Robinson reformed Titanic with three additional members: Mick Walker, Phil Wilton, and Didier Blum. The new single was released the same year, called I'm the Law, which is available on DVD.
The new album Ashes and Diamonds, is being recorded at the present time, and is expected to be released at the end of the Summer of 2007.
