Album Review

Although it got lost in a flood of new romantic/new hairstyle dross at the start of the 80s, there is far more substance to Missing Persons' debut proper than the likes of A Flock of Seagulls or Classix Nouveau could ever hope to muster. Sure, there were cheesy synthesizers aplenty and a slick production which threatened to strangle the band's melodic flair, but in Dale Bozzio, Missing Persons had a natural star. Bozzio's sugar hiccup vocal style was both alien and alluring, though she struggled to overcome reservations about the way her image was exploited (seemingly with her co-operation) by Capitol. Her futuristic latex boob tube should be a prime exhibit in any 80s atrocity exhibition. The pivotal song on the album, the title of which is an anagram of the band's name, was "Walking in L.A.," which became a minor hit on the back of the group's glossy magazine visibility.

Customer Reviews

Great album, brings back memories!!

Dude, the anagram is Missing Persons = Spring Session M !!! C'mon, read the sentence right. Anywho, there are 3 really excellent songs here all of which were in the prime of new wave punk. Also, who doesn't like seeing Dale in a plastic tube top!!!

Total new wave!

People do not realize the musicians that make up this band. Terry Bozzio is a fantastic drummer who along with guitarist Warren Cuccurullo played with Frank Zappa during the 70's on some of Zappa's best work. Cuccurullo later went on to work with Duran Duran and compose "Ordinary World". All in all, a solid New Wave effort, and one that should be included on any iPod!!

An enthusiastic 2 thumbs up!

What fun memories, I loved this album when I was little!
Me and my friends would dress up and put on funny performances for anyone around. They'd get such a laugh but we thought we were being so cool. ... Ah, good times!

Famed as much for their video-ready space age image as for their music, the Los Angeles-based new wave outfit Missing Persons formed in 1980, a year after the marriage of singer Dale Bozzio and her husband, drummer Terry. A one-time member of Frank Zappa's backing band, Terry Bozzio met the former Dale Consalvi (an ex-Playboy Bunny) at a Hollywood recording studio; after founding Missing Persons — initially dubbed U.S. Drag — the couple recruited fellow Zappa...
