Home Artists - A to K Artists - G Great Buildings

Great Buildings

With their seamless harmonies and carefully constructed, classically styled pop tunes, Great Buildings were the LA band with the best shot at wide AOR and Top 40 radio play in the post-Knack early 80s.

Songwriters Danny Wilde and Ian Ainsworth met in The Quick, Kim Fowley‘s early glitter-punk outfit who released a sole album, Mondo Deco.

From the start, the band kept a relatively low profile on the local club circuit and got their big break with Columbia and released Apart From The Crowd in 1981.

Wilde and Solem resurfaced in The Rembrandts in the 1990s.
