Quickflight - Discography (1980-1984)

Quickflight was a heavy electronic band from (Canada). Their first album, Breakaway, presented them as the up-and-coming next big thing on the order of synthesizer-driven arena rockers like (Styx),(A Flock Of Seagulls), albeit with slightly more of a new-wave edge. Their concerts were major productions for the time lots of Star Wars-era sound and light effects. An affectionate profile in CCM announced that each one of the band members was a solo artist in his own right. THe groups was also said to have played together for four years and to have a sound that was “incredibly tight”. Breakaway includes one regional (Canadian) radio hit, “Pink Shirts,” in addition to the energetic title track, the MOR “Simple Way,” and the reggae-inflected “To the Way.” A track called “Modern Romans” (sung by King) addresses the contemporary Iranian “hostage crisis” with reference to the failed rescue mission ordered by President Carter. More explicitly Christian fare can be found in the confrontational “Atheist” and the theological “The Cross Is Crazy (To the People of the World).” By the second album, the group was down to a trio, but True Tunes declared Decent Beat to be “miles ahead of it’s time in both writing and production.” A style shift reveals the influence of British synthesizer bands like Human League, Soft Cell and especially (After the Fire)
