Pat Taylor is a long serving guitarist on the Memphis scene. A few months back, Eric reviewed the D Beaver And Combinations LP. Well, Pat makes an appearance on that album. Winding forward nearly ten years, Pat and wife Susanne Jerome Taylor (a surefire 80's hottie if ever there was one!) combined with the Caudill brothers and keyboardist Tom Ward to form The Breaks. The band land fairly and squarely into AOR territory, with their Scandal like sound and edgy image. The Taylors would 'break' from The Breaks to become Drama two years later.

You can spot a video on You Tube for 'She Wants You'.

Yes Filippo- The Breaks were very derivative, but there's something about the album that still holds a certain charm. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.

For granted, not every song is great but as a whole this is a very enjoyable pop-rock/AOR album. The Drama comparisation is of course inevitable although this is less high-tech sounding. In any case, both albums are essential listening as far as 80's poppy AOR goes...

The only CD release on the market of 'The Breaks' is an industrial CDR bootleg (no label/catalog nor barcode) which has a curious bonus track added: a unique and full length promo song recorded for a US pop radio (Memphis FM 100) by pre-Breaks combo The Shoe Section featuring the Taylors. Check it out:
