    Forgotten 80's Vol 46: RPM- The Best Band You've Never Heard!

    itunes pic
    Why this group didn't hit it big in the 80's with this LP, "Phonongenic", I'll never know. The track "Man Overboard" should've been a huge hit, but basically no one ever heard it. Their record company failed to promote them properly, and they fell through the cracks. Band member Jimmy Lee Sloas went on to become a sought after studio bassist/producers, and worked with many artists in the country/rock/ and Christian industries, even forming his own band and releasing a CD. (Dogs Of Peace) The tracks featured are: 01- Man Overboard 02- Piece Of Glass 03- The Curtain's Gonna Fall 04- Head In The Sand Lead singer: http://www.robertwhitejohnson.com Guitarist: http://www.moregendel.com

    Wang Chung's first album was recorded under the name "Huang Chung". They changed the spelling on subsequent albums. Their first album is hard to find on cd, but it's worth it if you can grab it. Some nice forgotten gems from the 80's. The songs included are: 01- China 02- Chinese Girls 03- Hold Back The Tears 04- Dancing

    Forgotten 80's Vol 43- Randy Bishop & The Underdogs

    itunes pic
    A truly FORGOTTEN powerpop/rock gem from the 80's. I can't even find what this guy's up to now. It's such a common name, searching the net is fruitless! If you have any idea what he's up to now, send me an e-mail. This is a transfer from vinyl, not available on CD. The songs on this podcast are: 01- Two Hearts On The Loose 02- Underdog 03- If I Was A Fool
