One hit wonders, Dave and the Dynamos were an offshoot of folk pop act Hogsnort Rupert (of 'Pretty Girl' fame). Their origins were in a Hogsnort Rupert live skit featuring a band of aging rockers performing a Dave Luther composition called 'Life Begins at 40'. Audience requests encouraged Jordan to release the song as a single. It spent three weeks at number one in 1983 and stayed in the Top 40 for 22 weeks. When a follow-up 'Can't Spell Rhythm' took a year to emerge, momentum was lost and Dave and the Dynamos were reabsorbed into Hogsnort Rupert.
