As my taste started to veer away from hard rock to new wave
I started to get into bands like Strange Advance
Produced by Bruce Fairbairn, this Canadian band never made much of an impact here in the States. Their name sounded abstract, the cover was impressionistic but really they were poppy. Guest included Bryan Adams and Paul Dean of Loverboy. How "alternative" could they be?
I liked this one as it seemed moody and melancholy; again music to ponder the romantic angst of a teenager.
