Missing Persons is an American band that plays a blend of New Wave and pop rock. The band was founded in 1980 in Los Angeles by guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, vocalist Dale Bozzio, and drummer Terry Bozzio. They went on to add bassist Patrick O’Hearn and keyboardist Chuck Wild.
Dale and Terry Bozzio met while working with Frank Zappa, and they married in 1979. Cuccurullo encountered the pair while contributing to the Zappa album Joe’s Garage. O’Hearn was also a former member of Zappa’s touring band, and Chuck Wild had played with a variety of bands before joining.
In 1986, Missing Persons released their third and final LP, “Color In Your Life”. The album was considered more conventional after the experimental 2nd album, “Rhyme & Reason” only managed to hit #43 on the US charts in 1984.
“Color In Your Life” performed even more poorly, going to #88 but it did spawn this excellent single “I Can’t Think About Dancin'” which received the Steve Thompson & Michael Barbiero remix treatment for the 12″ release.
