In the late 70s British singer/songwriter Iain Matthews lived in the USA with career ups and downs. In 1978 he had a US Top 10 hit with the song "Shake It", just two years later he didn't even have a record deal. In 1977 already he had moved from Los Angeles to Seattle where he met David Surkamp, leader of the band Pavlov's Dog and singer with the probably most unique voice in the music business. Although both came from totally different musical directions ("I hated his music, he hated mine - that's why we knew it will work" - Iain Matthews), they formed the band HI-FI, a three guitar, bass and drums driven rock combo (Bruce Hazen, guitars: Garey Shelton, bass; Bob Briley, drums) which had almost nothing in common what Matthews had done in the 10 years before, and they shared all the vocal parts.
