The reputation of Arto Lindsay (vocals, guitar) as an avant-garde noisemaker couldn't really be seen with Ambitious Lovers, a dance-pop group he formed with keyboardist Peter Scherer in the early '80s. After leaving the no wave band DNA, Lindsay balanced the sonic adventurousness of his earlier work with Brazilian music and New York funk. In 1984, Ambitious Lovers released their first LP, Envy. Lindsay and Scherer wanted to create songs that were accessible and catchy; however, the group's genre-bending style never caught on with the mainstream. Two more albums followed -- 1988's Greed and 1991's Lust -- but neither of them received much attention outside of critics' circles. Lindsay recorded a few solo outings in the '90s. ~ Michael Sutton
