One of my favorites from 1984, The Vels (Alice DeSoto on vocals, Chris Larkin on keyboards and Charles Hanson on the bass) were an odd quasi-synth-rap-pop group that had an MTV "video hit" in "Look My Way" from their "Velocity" debut, then disbanded after a second release. Alice went back to her real name (Cohen) when she started singing for Die Monster Die and later Espadrille -- but she'll always be the fun girl in the quirky band singing "if you can't get down get up!" to me ... There's little information about the band on the Web, but another blogger wrote fondly about them back in 2005.
