Album Notes
In 1984, people were talking about the “new wave” in rock music. Talking about those hairdressers. A bunch of guys named “Taylor.” That blonde woman.

And of course, Sid Luscious.

Sid Luscious and The Pants had the look and the sound the world didn’t know it craved. Teenage prodigies, they quickly rose to prominence in 1983 '" barely able to drive themselves to rehearsal!

Showcase performances around the world followed, as did a recording contract. Sid Luscious and The Pants were primed for great success. The press machine had geared up to prepare everyone for what the band called “Maximum New Wave”.

And then the bottom fell out of their world. Holed up in various studios for almost a year, they struggled with technology, the record business, and each other. For reasons unknown, their record company decided not to release the completed record and dropped the band from their contract.

Sid disappeared shortly thereafter and the band went their separate ways.

And just as suddenly as they had been headliners, 1984’s “next big thing” became an all-but-forgotten footnote.

The intervening 20 years have not been kind to the band. How does one continue on when youth’s promise and potential are unfulfilled? Like everyone else, somehow The Pants survived...all except original keyboard player Max F, whose story is as tragic as it is mysterious.

Now, 20 years later, the band has re-formed. They’re in their mid-30s. They have a new, young keyboard player. Their legendary album “Life, Style” was finally released in 2005.

Maximum New Wave is here. The band is ready for the world...but is the world ready for them?

80s synth pop; better than most that I remember
I am pretty knowledgeable about 80s synth pop and wondered why I had never heard of these guys. Had this CD been released in 1984, it would have generated at least one Top 40 hit (probably two or three). Songs like Baby Space, People Talk and Push The Button really move. This is as good as anything Naked Eyes, Thompson Twins, Soft Cell, etc. was producing at the time.
