A fter seven arduous years that saw the band release a string Cheerleader - Zwol* - Effective Immediately singles but only one album, Brutus called it quits in late ' This left Toronto native and frontman Zwol real name Walter Zwolinski regrouping and going solo.
A year later after assembling a back up band which partially consisted of ex- Brutus mate Dennis Pinhorn on bass, guitarist Phillip Donnelly, Jim Isbell on drums and Charles Chalmers on horns.
Touring the local circuit, he became the first Canadian artist to sign directly with an American label, EMI when he hooked up with manager George Elmes. Zwol took some material to Crazy Mama Studios in Nashville, and had wrapped up the bulk of the sessions at Her Eyes And Smile x10 - Sooperskalar Band - Frrdgzz 4 Tha Klnkly Nsane Criteria Studios by early ' The eponymous debut I Loves You Porgy - Various - Late Night Moods released a few months later, and produced by Zwol and the team of Roger Cook and Ralph Murphy, was an instant critic's favourite.
Murphy was the producer on the Brutus album, and all the songs on the new record were written solely by Zwol, with the exceptions of "Every Man For Himself," co-written by Murphy, and "Use My Love," written with Stacey Heydon, who'd just come off a tour with David Bowie.
Unfortunately the single wasn't as lucky Stateside. Without a real push from management other than some nifty album jacket packagingit failed to make a dent in the charts. The new version became Zwol's second solo single. It too found its way to vinyl in various versions, including two different b-side songs, and an extended version, but didn't fare as well as its predecessor. After nearly a year of shows throughout the east on both sides of the Cheerleader - Zwol* - Effective Immediatelyhe took some time off and re-emerged at Toronto's Soundstage Studios in the spring of ' With a new Cheerleader - Zwol* - Effective Immediately band where only Pinhorn remained, the cast was rounded out by guitarist Bernie LaBarge, Grant Slater on keyboards, and drummer Sonny Bernardi.
With new producer John de Nottback helping Zwol, the album impressed the critics with a good mix of danceable rock rhythms held together with tight production and strong melodies. Zwol continued on the circuit and formed The Rage which recorded one record, before taking an office job at Attic Records in the mid '80s. But by the end of the decade he'd gone back to music full time, and formed Naked Brunch, where he continued to play the odd show in and around Toronto.
He resurfaced inaround the same time as forming Naked Brunch.
