American Top 40 PastBlast Redux, 3/20/82: Quarterflash, “Find Another Fool”

Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited slightly from the original.

There probably aren’t too many bands whose vocalist doubles as the saxophonist, but Rindy Ross of Quarterflash pulled it off with ease on their three AT40 hits.  The group, from Oregon, was originally known as Seafood Mama; I’d guess that their record label asked them to consider a change.  This one was the follow-up to their smash “Harden My Heart.”  It’s at #30 and would get to #16.  I really love the level of vitriol being expressed here.

Even though they’re now eligible for Medicare, it seems that Quarterflash (well, Rindy and her husband Marv, anyway) is still active, occasionally releasing new music.  It’s not too hard to find a video of an appearance from about six years ago on what I’d guess is a Pacific Northwest TV morning show.   Her voice had less certainty to it, but Rindy could still wail out that memorable riff from “HMH.”

  1. Love it when the people in my little world come together!

    The video you embedded is from my man, Brandon Hixson. He is the BIGGEST Quarterflash fan I know. We also share a mutual passion for classic K-Tel compilations.

    1. I recognized Brandon’s name from your blog. This is the same video I posted on FB last year when this article appeared (he’s also responsible for the December 2011 morning TV appearance video I link to). It is a small world!
