Musicians
    (1969-1974)
    Formed at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey
    Line-up:
    Elliot Lurie - lead vocals, guitar
    Lawrence Gonsky - keyboards
    Pieter Sweval - bass
    Jeff Grob - drums
    Recorded 'Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)' and 'Jimmy Loves Mary Anne'
    They are a two hit wonder.
    They had a harder edge but their only two chart hits were pop fluff.
    Concert-goers were left disappointed when the band rocked out rather than harmonized per what fans were expecting from their hits.
    Lurie quit in early 1974 and the remaining three members changed the name to Lookinglass (to no avail) until disbanding by the end of '74.
    They met while attending Rutgers University, formed a band that played frat parties, graduated, reformed, then signed a record contract.
    'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' went platinum and reached #1 on Billboard's Singles chart (August 1972).
    Lurie has become a successful music supervisor in the film industry with such movies as 'Jumpin' Jack Flash (1986),' 'Alien³ (1992),' 'Larger Than Life (1996),' 'A Night at the Roxbury (1998),' 'Get Over It (2001),' 'I Spy (2002),' 'The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003)' and 'Spanglish (2004).'
    Selma sang 'Brandy (You're A Fine Girl)' in an episode of 'The Simpsons,' lamenting and identifying with Brandy about her own problems with men.
