The Monroes released one of the most infectious slices of 80s power pop. It was their only big hit, and maybe that’s enough.
“Smoke From A Distant Fire” was their only big hit — but this blue-eyed-soul earworm burned hot in the 70s.
It had crunchy guitar riffs, a unique vocal, and more than a touch of glitter rock. No wonder “Hot Child In the City” was such a 70s hit.
