Jan 1986 File Photo  - Montreal (Qc) CANADA - The Arrows vocalist/songwriter Dean McTaggart <br />
<br />
<br />
The Arrows formed in 1981 as a 6-piece act playing the 'Chicken Deli' circuit in Toronto. Their first EP, 'Misunderstood', was recorded at Grant Avenue studios with Daniel Lanois and released on Spontaneous Records as a means to expand into original material.<br />
<br />
With a severe downsizing of the group, vocalist/songwriter Dean McTaggart continued honing his craft along with behind-the-scenes songwriter David Tyson who produced the band's first full-length album 'Stand Back' for A & M Records in 1984 which featured the hit single "Meet Me In The Middle".<br />
<br />
Lightning struck twice with their successful follow-up LP in 1985 ('The Lines Are Open'), as the act expanded to a 6-piece once more with addition of Glenn Olive (bass) and Blood, Sweat & Tears' Bobby Economou (drums). The album was once again produced & co-written with David Tyson and produced the hit singles "Talk Talk" and "Heart Of The City".<br />
<br />
The band split up in the mid-80s with Dean McTaggart going on to a successful songwriting career for Amanda Marshall among others; Glenn Olive would later join Paul Myers' Gravelberrys and Planet Earth around Toronto. <br />
