The 77's United States
When the 77s came of age in 1984, with the brilliant calling card of All Fall Down (Exit/A&M), it was evident to those who heard it that this was something new. For anyone truly in love with rock & roll, who loved passion, hooks, harmony, three (or four) chords and the truth, here was a band that delivered. And if you listened to college radio that year, you could hear it. A look at the college charts found the 77s in the same company as The Cure, Let's Active, The Replacements, The Church, and others.
