At 99 we present We Run by Strange Advance. A Vancouver new wave band, they formed in 1982, and were almost immediately nominated for a Juno (Canada’s Grammy) as most promising band in 1983. We Run was taken from their album, 2WO and released as a single in 1985. It reached number 28 on the RPM pop chart. The band never made strides outside of Canada. In addition, the were mostly a session band and apparently had never played live prior to 1985.
They only released 3 albums overall and essentially went dormant after releasing the 3rd in 1988.
