This Midwestern power pop quintet (keyboardist Dave Hearn, guitarists Dave Steen, and Kirk Kaufman, bassist Frank Wiewel, and drummer Larry Adams) came built with four strong songwriters/vocalists fighting for room on each of their two long players (only drummer Adams sat from the songwriting duties). Through the span of two albums on Columbia (1981’s self-titled debut and 1982’s brilliant follow-up, 30 Secs Over Otho), each one of the band’s creative makes fought for vinyl fabric period, with Hearn going for a small lead over others. When neither record set the graphs burning, Columbia allow band go plus they split. Another victim from the “Two Record Offer” curse from the ’80s (also start to see the Elektrics, the Deserters, the Laughing Canines, Four Out of Five Doctors, etc.).
