20?20 Discography of CDs


Interstate Interstate CD (1998)
CD Check Availability  Details
20?20 CD discography With 1995's FOUR DAY TORNADO, Tulsa's 20/20 pulled off a feat few bands ever accomplished. 20/20 produced a comeback album better than the albums the group had produced in its original incarnation. The 1998 follow-up, INTERSTATE, is slightly less surprising in its strength, but it continues 20/20's winning streak. Singer/songwriters Steve Allen and Ron Flynt mesh beautifully as creative foils. Though written individually, their songs complement each other extremely well. Opening with the anthemic heartland rock of "Land of the Free," which recalls both Tom Petty and "Cougar"-era John Mellencamp, INTERSTATE drives (sorry) through 11 fists-pounding-the-dash songs. In a better world, each of these tracks would be blasting out of car radios across the nation. A fine album from an underrated but always entertaining band. Photographers: Todd V. Wolfson; Carl Caprioglio . Personnel: Ron Flynt (vocals, guitar); Steve Allen (guitar, electric guitar, organ, vibraphone, background vocals); Bill Belknap (zither, drums, cymbals, percussion). Recording information: Blue Planet Studio, Nashville, TN; Jumping Dog Studios, Austin, TX; Long Branch Studio, Tulsa, OK.

20?20 albums Includes liner notes by Steve Allen, Ron Flynt and Chris Silagyi. In the late 1970s and early `80s, you couldn't throw a skinny tie in Los Angeles without hitting a power pop band; in the wake of the Knack's brief but seismic commercial breakthrough, it seemed like every careerist rock dude on the West Coast got a haircut, put on a crooked smile, tried to write some killer hooks, and aspired to make a fast fortune like Doug Feiger. Most L.A. pop bands of the era sounded almost painfully calculated, but 20/20 was different; founders Steve Allen and Ron Flynt were Oklahoma boys who loved classic British Invasion pop and heard the same call of the electric guitar that guided fellow Tulsa native Dwight Twilley, and like Twilley, they moved to Los Angeles to form a band and make it big. But Allen and Flynt had sharper tastes than most of their peers, and while 20/20 had killer hooks and plenty of tuneful energy, their music was a bit more angular and far more melodically surprising than most of their peers on the L.A. scene, reinforced by the band's strong songwriting skills, superb harmonies, and gift for lyrical twists and turns. 20/20 developed a loyal following in Los Angeles and scored a record ...

20?20 music CDs 4 DAY TORNADO is an Enhanced CD containing both a full audio program and multimedia computer files. 20/20 left Tulsa to become one of Los Angeles' leading power-pop bands on the late-'70s skinny tie scene, releasing three fine albums and recording one of the defining power-pop singles of all time, "Yellow Pills." When that era ended, the band returned home to Oklahoma and went on hiatus for over a decade, playing only occasional live shows. In 1995, amidst a growing power-pop revival led in part by a fanzine named after 20/20's classic single, the group reconvened in a Tulsa studio and emerged with the descriptively titled 4 DAY TORNADO. Still very much pop, but less overtly Anglophilic than 20/20's earlier albums, 4 DAY TORNADO is a catchy collection of riff rockers with a slightly tougher and rootsier sound. As gutsy as the Smithereens at their best, 20/20 tears its way through such gems as the garage-y "Nothing at All" and the closing raveup "Well, Frankly." Recorded at Long Branch Studios, Tulsa, Oklahoma. 20/20: Ron Flynt (vocals, guitar, keyboards, bass); Steve Allen (vocals, guitar); Bill Belknap (vocals, synthesizer, drums, percussion). Producers: Bill Belknap, Ron Flynt, Steve Allen. Personnel: Ron Flynt (vocals, ...
