early Fall of 1987 through late Fall of 1993, Love Bomb
performed in and around the Philadelphia-Wilmington club scene.
The band's original line-up was: Sean Kimball, Guitars and
Vox; Matt Eltringham, Lead Guitar and Vox; Bruce English, Keys
and Vox; Jerry C. Williams, Drums; Bobby Foster, Bass and Lead
After a year or so, Matt left the band and Kenny Markford
took over on Lead Guitar.
In 1990, the band had the opportunity to record at Studio 4
with Grammy Award-winning producer, Phil Nicolo. A good friend,
Jeff Faber was hugely responsible for making the project happen.

In 1990, Gordon Townsend and Tim Reeder took over on Drums,
one shortly after the other.
Then, in 1991, Fran Sankey took on the Lead Guitar role. The
last line-up change took place in 1992 with Dave Esposto
becoming the band's final drummer.
In 1992, Love Bomb changed its name to "Bliss" and recorded
and released "Soul Windows."
Coming close to greatness on several occasions, ultimately,
the band's more classic sound was of little interest to record
labels looking for the next "Poison."
Bobby and Sean had agreed to give it 2 years to succeed. 6
years later, the band dismantled.
Fortunately, these recordings remain as a legacy and the
music is as powerful and accessible as ever.
