Up to date set of videos:Blondini wrote:I just discovered this group from the eighties who were pretty big in America but virtually unknown here. From 1981 to 1986 they caused quite a stir with their hot mix of shiny synth pop and spiky new wave guitar. The group were formed by married couple Terry Bozzio (drums) and Dale Bozzio (vocals). Dale's provocative outfits and strong, sexy image were many young men's entry into adulthood! Just check out the video for hit Words
Dale's vocal style is kind of Lene Lovich meets Cyndi Lauper (pre-Cyndi), stylistically she was like Wendy O Williams of the Plasmatics with Debbie Harry's hair and Toyah's hairspray. I can't believe i (and most of the UK) have not heard of this group.
Duran Duran fans might be aware of them, as guitarist Warren Cuccurillo was a founder member before they split in 86 and he joined Duran until Andy and John Taylor rejoined Duran in 2001.
This group are great and i just wanted to let people know about them.
They've been cited as possible influences on Shiny Toy Guns and The Sounds. That's the main reason i YouTubed them. Oh and Mylo made their name known on his God-fearing sample-fest Destroy Rock n Roll-
"Missing Persons, Duran Duran, Missing Persons, Duran Duran"

And some YouTube posters said she was the Gwen Stefani of her day- well, she had the legs, the quirkiness.
