QUINTON, DAVID- Overlook Road LP
David Quinton left his mark with his unique brand of power pop in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. His 1981 self-titled album,originally released on Bomb Records - is still considered to be a classic within the genre.
At only 17 years old, David started his music career in 1978 as the drummer in The Mods from Toronto, Canada. His songwriting skills attracted the attention of Dead Boys’ lead singer, Stiv Bators and In 1979, David was invited by Stiv to record a handful of tracks in Los Angeles that were released on Bomp records. He toured with Stiv and played on his debut album, “Disconnected”, as well as writing the power pop classic “Make Up Your Mind”
The master tapes were recently found, repaired, refurbished and remastered for this release.
