Pursuit Of Happiness PhotoFORMED: 1985

Toronto's Pursuit of Happiness serves as a vehicle for the wry romantic ponderings of singer/guitarist/songwriter Moe Berg and plays a brand of power-pop influenced by Todd Rundgren, who produced their first two albums. In addition to Berg, the band was filled out by guitarist Kris Abbott, bassist Johnny Sinclair, drummer Dave Gilburg, and additional vocalist Leslie Stanwyck. The group toured with Duran Duran and Eurythmics to support its 1988 debut, Love Junk. One Sided Story spawned a minor European hit in "She's So Young" and featured new members Bran Barker on bass and female vocalist Susan Murumets. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
