    I have never thought of FNM as a one hit wonder band, but I suppose they actually are.

    I know - I liked, I mean really liked From Out of Nowhere, and I thought Angel Dust was even better.

    Agreed. I remember buying Angel Dust on casette [​IMG] at a pawn shop about 10 years ago. I played the hell out of it.

    I still listened to them, though didn't buy them anymore. So I could see a second hand purchase.

    Yes I did. I didn't go out of my way to purchase it on cassette, it was a pawn shop. Two dollars, why not.

    Actually, determining a true one-hit wonder is sometimes difficult. Americans may only be able to name one song by A-Ha, to choose an example, but they had a long and successful career in Europe-- even playing the world's largest outdoor concert ever at the time! Someone poasted this in a previous thread of this nature:
