Breakaway (Tunesmith TS6005) 1980 Canada *
Christian music’s hallowed response to quirky synth-driven rock of artists like Gary Numan and The Cars. These Canadians were one of the first on the new wave scene with Ric de Groot behind the keys, Pete Cordalis on lead guitar, Doug Giesbrecht on bass, Gary Hendricks on drums and Mike King on rhythm guitar. All five share in the song-writing which includes such classic titles as ‘Pink Shirts’, ‘Atheist’, ‘Modern Romans’ and ‘Shuttle’ (“I’m boarding my shuttle going to leave this base, light speed forward ‘til I see your face”). From the heyday of the gutsy Tunesmith label. (The Archivist by Ken Scott, 4th Edition).
