The Visitors - No Sign of Intelligent Life (1981, Airstrip)

On their 1981 platter, No Sign of Intelligent Life, The Visitors are so decade-centric they literally invite us to "Enter the Eighties."  And even though these Bay Area bad boys play music that's more quintessential of their era than actually essential, there is sort of a rush to that introductory number, which flirts with some mighty tasty power pop and wave maneuvers.  Not sophisticated or frilly enough for the new romantic set, and way too innocuous for Reagan-era punks, The Visitors settle on a basic modern rock formula with mainstream leanings, albeit a little too jovial and goofy for their own good at times.  With such a ubiquitous moniker, finding any pertinent biographical info on this bunch is a considerable challenge, but purports ...Intelligent Life to be the Visitors lone recorded offering.
