Agent

This Canadian heavy rock quintet was formed in Vancouver in 1981, from the three-man nucleus of Bob Smart (guitar), Craig Zurba (keyboards) and Andre Kunkel (bass). After some short-lived line-ups, they stabilized with the help of vocalist Rick Livingstone and drummer Dave Allen in 1983. They fascinated the eye of Virgin Information after earning a ‘Fight Of The Rings’ competition, and were contacted by ex-Doobie Brothers Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, who created their debut recording. Affected by Foreigner, Styx, Kansas and Loverboy, their design was industrial, though unspectacular, melodic rock and roll.
