Inspired equally by Memphis power pop and the sleek guitar moves of such New York bands as Television, the North Carolina jangle-poppers of the '80s produced plenty of great music. At the top of the heap are Don Dixon and Marti Jones, who began collaborating early in the decade. Dixon produced and wrote many of the songs for Jones' classic 1985 full-length Unsophisticated Time. Featuring covers of tunes by Peter Holsapple and Elvis Costello, Unsophisticated placed Jones' vocals in an array of settings from Zombies-style '60s pop to folk-rock. The same year, Dixon released the soul-inflected Most of the Girls Like to Dance but Only Some of the Boys Like To. Now married, they've continued to perform and record, with Jones pursuing a painting career. They'll be doing songs from their brand-new full-length Living Stereo, along with a few old numbers.
