Here is a band that you really don't here a whole lot about.Does anyone remember them at all? They got some airplay,on WLIR back around 1982-83 with their dance hit "Avenue B" It had a sound all it's own.Kind of like a cross between Devo and Sparks.Does anyone know what they have been up to?

I'd like to know too what happened to them. They had a good dance song ("Humanized") that was airplayed in Peru (S. America) and I recorded in cassette around 1985, but maybe this song dated from before.
