Missing Persons

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 alumnus Warren Cuccurullo on guitar and Patrick O'Hearn on bass, and with classically trained keyboardist Chuck Wild in tow, they began playing area clubs.

In 1981, the band released its self-titled debut EP; after signing to Capitol, the label reissued the record in 1982, and the singles "Words" and "Destination Unknown" both nearly hit the Top 40. Their videos also helped Missing Persons find success on the fledgling MTV network, where Dale Bozzio's hiccuping voice and campy look (comprised of shocking-pink hair and sci-fi outfits capped off with Plexiglass bras) combined with the group's synth-driven songs to make them naturals for heavy rotation. Later in 1982, the group issued its first full-length album, Spring Session M (an anagram of their name), which launched the underground smash "Walking in L.A."

After 1984's Rhyme and Reason notched only a minor hit with the single "Give," Missing Persons enlisted Chic's Bernard Edwards to produce 1986's dance-pop effort Color in Your Life; the album stiffed, however, and both the band and the Bozzios themselves broke up. While Dale Bozzio issued one solo album on Prince's Paisley Park label, Terry Bozzio went on to work with Jeff Beck; Cuccurullo, meanwhile, joined Duran Duran, O'Hearn recorded several instrumental new age albums, and Wild composed music for films and television. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

betito , you are a raging idiot, ill bet you never saw them live too. go phuk yourself you hating negative prick. missing persons rocks, mental hopscotch is one of the greatest songs ever recorded
This had to be the one of the worse bands that emerged during the 80s. They were so plastic and commercializ e d . Prepackage BS that made it's way to feeble minds of American audiences. Untalented hacks riding the skirts of already established music genera. No real style of their own.
Spring Session M brings back many fond memories, remember Planet P? That was a great time in music history. On the flip side of the music spectrum New Age Music was coming to light as well as the Hip Hop Rap Party Mix Era. M-TV actually played videos back then... What happened?
Sweet LA 80's sound, great band.
Well, got 2 go 4 now. I guess there's no one 2 have a good conversation with. And luv No doubt & Gwen Stefani by the way, but yet, I don't know why Missing Persons keep on getting mixd & compared with other artists. Ok, leaving chatroom but leaving ears bhind 4 this cool@** station!
I don't know what Lady gaga has 2 do with this, but anyway, of course animal cruelty is not good @ all.But I feel her talent is a thing apart & nobody can take that away. 80's good memories r 4 ever.
I agree with Mauriha. Hope recently there's anyone with similar opinions. Where r U people!
Catkicker by the way.....
Ur missing a point clicker, at least back in those days artists were Stoll leave something 4 the imagination, compared 2 this days, specially with Gaga dude.I respect ur opinion though. But still, I'm an 80's rocker 2 the bone baby. And a salute 2 all my 80's rockers. KEEP ON ROCKIN'!!!
saw them in a little club in Honolulu in '82...THEY ROCKED !!!
love this group and their funky lyrics
Lady Gaga bites bad
This band was beyond cool. Wish they had lasted longer and had more good songs. Good semi punk. Anyone remember " the waitresses"?
Terry Bozzio has to be one of the BEST drummers of all time!!!
stayoutofmym a i l b o x
dont ever compare gaga to anyone from the 80's, some of them sucked, but none are anything like her....well, ok madona could sue her for stealling her act but....
Oops-and my 80's life before my brain damage-doubl e vision 24/7 doubly SUCKS
I greatly miss 80's tunes, ORIGINAL MTV

Check this out im into heavy metal, But i listened to this band caused i played drums back in the 80's and i know great drumming when i hear it... This drummer can keep a solid beat, and has very good technical change up's. Don't belive me? listen to there music... It rocks; the singer is probably THEE best girl singer iv'e heard and see was fine looking, still looks good.,.,.,., .
Awesome!
Lady Gaga?? YOU are NO Dale Bozzio!!!! I'm onto you girl!!!

dmlp1960
Dale makes Lady GaGa sound weak.

I actually saw the Spring Session M tour in 1983 and will never forget just how good they were. Terry Bozzio is an unbelievable drummer live.
i loved the plastic bras!!!
She became a crazy cat lady. Now she might do a year in jail for cruelity to animals. They found something like 14 dead cats in her house and 30 live ones. Too bad
Have you seen her lately?
You should read what the band members think of the band now.
Dale is still the quintiscenti a l woman of the 80's. Terri Nunn comes in 2nd.
Dale is still a very hot woman. And yes, this was a very underrated bands of the 80's. Still play Spring Session M on a regular basis.
SWEET JESUS ABOVE!!!! JUST ONCE I WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOMETHING WITH DALE WHERE THERE ISN"T A COMMENT ABOUT GA-GAG!! SHE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A CHEAP COPY OF A MONTAGE OF REAL ARTISTS..UNL E S S SHE IS IN DRAG...SHE IS NOT FIERCE!! DALE FOREVER!!!
One of the most underrated bands ever.
cecillearbou r

MISSING PERSONS 4EVER! DALE WAS A NEW WAVE GODESS. SPRING SESSION M IS ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS EVER! GREAT BAND AND TERRY IS A GOD OF DRUMMING!!
