A blend of New Wave and Pop rock, The singles “Mental Hopscotch”, “Surrender Your Heart” (1984), “Destination Unknown,” “Words,” “Walking in L.A.,” and “Windows” met with varying success, especially in the local markets of Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco. Two years of hard work led up to a signing with Capitol Records in 1982. With label support, the re-released EP and the new full-length album Spring Session M (an anagram of “Missing Persons”) went gold. The band was founded in 1980 in Los Angeles by guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, vocalist Dale Bozzio, and drummer Terry Bozzio. They went on to add bassist Patrick O’Hearn and keyboardist Chuck Wild. Dale’s quirky voice and heavy makeup made the band a favorite on MTV in the early 1980s. Her revealing outfits played a pivotal role in moving the culture of music videos towards that of overt sexual exhibitionism. Warren Cuccurullo joined Duran Duran as guitar player for the years of 1986 – 2001 The Duran Duran Years. Dale and Terry Bozzio met while working with Frank Zappa, and they married in 1979. Cuccurullo encountered the pair while contributing to the Zappa album Joe’s Garage. O’Hearn was also a former member of Zappa’s touring band, and Chuck Wild had played with a variety of bands before joining. Missing Persons appeared at a three-day Southern California concert known as the US Festival in May 1983, along with Berlin, David Bowie, The Pretenders, U2, and several other performers.
