The brand new wave band Single Bullet Theory were shot straight down by major-label heartaches before these were truly given an opportunity to be heard. Solitary Bullet Theory created in Richmond, VA in 1976 as X-Breed, an organization offering Michael Maurice Garrett (vocals), Frank Daniel (acoustic guitar), and Dennis Madigan (drums). The music group transformed its name to Solitary Bullet Theory after Gary Alan “Goober” Holmes (acoustic guitar) and Davey Wynn (bass) became a member of. Inspired from the D.We.Con. ethic of English punk rockers, the bandmembers documented and released their debut EP independently. Nevertheless, Wynn departed in the band prior to the program was over, changed by guitarist “Mudd” Herman. Daniel performed the bass rather. Herman didn’t last; the music group added bassist Keith MacPhee and Daniel came back to his electric guitar. In 1979, One Bullet Theory opened up for Patti Smith, among numerous every week gigs in ny that began to praise them with positive press clippings. The music group was after that asked to lead a track towards the compilation LP Clear Cuts, written by Elektra/Asylum. The melody “Maintain It Tight” would ultimately become One Bullet Theory’s lone appearance in the U.S. pop graphs, peaking at amount 78. In 1983, One Bullet Theory had been agreed upon to the Nemperor label, a subsidiary of CBS Information, and began documenting their first record, a record provided a pop polish that didn’t accurately catch their audio. The video for “Maintain It Tight” was put into MTV in 1984, but CBS abruptly ended marketing it. “Hold on to Your Heart” was said to be One Bullet Theory’s discovery single; nevertheless, CBS hardly ever released it. Disillusioned with the music sector, especially CBS’ insufficient support, One Bullet Theory split up before launching another LP.
