Morton (Jo Casters), Sherman (Herman Gillis) and Belluci (Roland Beelen) were among the founders of the New Beat musical trend that started in Belgium and expanded to elsewhere in Western Europe in 1987. Combined, they released over 100 recordings under various names in less than a year during the peak of the movement. The nickname "Morton-Sherman-Belucci" is allegedly a parody on the prolific 1980s Hi-NRG producer team of Stock, Aitken & Waterman.

Peel played some tracks from the Belgian New Beat, including Morton Sherman Belluci's Bulgarka, which used samples from the Bulgarian folk group Trio Bulgarka. The record got played by Peel in late 1988 and in 1992 when he rediscovered the record.
