Todd Rundgren’s Utopia

presented by SiriusXM & WFUV

Todd Rundgren’s Utopia formed in 1974 out of Rundgren’s desire to explore new musical territory after four years of making solo albums, including the seminal Something/Anything?, which included radio core evergreens “Hello It’s Me” and “I Saw The Light,” and which prompted the rock press to dub him “Rock’s New Wunderkind” and “Rock’s Renaissance Man.” Starting as a prog-rock-progenitor septet featuring Moogy Klingman, Ralph Schuckett and “M. Frog Labat” on keyboards, John Siegler on bass, Kevin Ellman on drums, and Rundgren on guitar, the band’s music ranged from extended synth experiments to four-song albums, while their live shows were distinguished by their ahead-of-the-curve video backdrops and computer-generated music.

In 1976, the group evolved into the shiny mainstream power-pop rock quartet, “Utopia,” uniting Rundgren with Willie Wilcox on drums, Kasim Sulton on bass. Standout Utopia albums included Oops! Wrong Planet, Adventures in Utopia, and Oblivion, with spawning hits including “Rock Love,” “Set Me Free,” “Mated,” and “Love Is The Answer.”
