Alexis Loves Coca Cola, Invention, and Brushing Teeth
Britton, who took their name from their singer and leader Michael Britton’s surname, were formed in the USA in the mid-80s.
An essentially conventional hard rock band in the mould of Dokken or Whitesnake, the rest of the line-up comprised Jim McMellen (guitar), Pat Schunk (guitar, keyboards), Skip Flank (bass) and Gary Holland (drums). Holland had formerly played with Great White. He could not have encountered great difficulty in adopting his style for Britton, who operated in similarly muddling melodic rock territory. The group’s debut album, Rock Hard, hardly set the world alight, but it was a competent if poorly recorded set. Afterwards the group members reconsidered their careers and the band broke up.
