VIVABEAT (Buy CDs by this artist)
Party in the War Zone (Charisma) 1980

This one-hit (well, almost one) California guitar-plus-synthesizer sextet sounds like Sparks at half speed. On an otherwise duff album, their big number, "Man From China," is a four-square dance track whose catchy hook is whistled for novelty effect.

[Ira Robbins]
