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. 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.”
TODAY : Dale Bozzio ( Lead Singer and Founding member ) continues to tour the states with her new line up of Missing Persons. Performing the Greatest Hits for audiences around the world “Destination Unknown, Words, Here & Now, Give, Walking In L.A., I Like Boys, Windows and more!
