Slow Children
Ska


Los Angeles new wave pop duo Slow Children formed in the late '70s as a full-fledged band that included future Bangles bassist Michael Steele, but by the time they secured a record deal, their membership was down to vocalist Pal Shazar and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Chinich. This duo scored a minor dance hit with "Spring in Fialta," but much of their music consisted instead of guitar-based pop with intellectual lyrics. That single was included on their 1981 self-titled debut, which was produced by Jules Shear and Stephen Hague; these two fleshed out the missing instrumentation themselves, with help from other musicians like Translator drummer David Scheff. Mad About Town followed in 1982, but failed to improve the band's songwriting skills. Steve Huey
