Lost and found: Face to Face '10-8-8'



If you were making a list of the Top Lost ‘45’s of the ‘80s, many would submit Face to Face’s classic 10-9-8. Even though Boston’s Face to Face was a new wave band that released three albums and multiple singles/videos, their legacy is 10-9-8 that peaked at No. 38 in 1984.

Face to Face would also have an unheralded role in the 1984’s Streets of Fire movie.

In the movie, Diane Lane’s fictional band, Ellen and the Attackers, is mostly Face to Face. Since Diane Lane does not actually sing in the movie, lead singer Laurie Sargent provides vocals on Never Be You and Sorcerer (written by Stevie Nicks) while another singer, Holly Sherwood, got the meatier song Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young. The male members of Face to Face do appear on screen as “The Attackers”.

Face to Face broke up in 1988.
