One of the great unrealized talents of the mid 70's new wave/punk movement was The Quick. Brandishing a sound that stood somewhere between Cheap Trick, Sparks and The Dickies, the band only managed to crank out one solitary album before vanishing into nowhere land. This impressive debut showed loads of potential, but as fate would have it, The Quick were destined to be a mere blip on the radar. Danny Wilde, the frontman with a boyish vocal affectation, went on to later form Great Buildings and The Rembrandts. Guitarist and primary writer, Stephen Hufsteter, made a living playing in numerous west coast bands, writing for other artists and also as a member of The Dickies and the Cruzados for a short time. Later he would resurface in Shrine, a female fronted alt-rock band.
