Add reminder

Fittingly enough for people who would call their band The Romantics, Wally Palmar, Jimmy Marinos, Mike Skill and Rich Cole played their first gig together on Valentines Day 1977. It was this very concert that would inspire their name, and playing their brand of perky new wave that was a direct challenge to the nihilism of British punk rock, the band spent the next couple of years touring around their native Michigan and the surrounding states. By 1979 the band had signed a record deal with Nemperor Records and their self-titled debut album came out in the September of that year. The album was in danger of slipping under the radar until the release of the single “What I Like About You”, which became a sleeper hit all over the world, charting everywhere from the U.S to Australia, where it was a top ten hit single.
