|Genres||Rock, Alternative rock|
Rhythm Corps was an alternative rock band from Detroit, Michigan in the 1980s. They released two extended play (EP) records and two full-length albums before breaking up. They are most well known for their minor hit "Common Ground."
Rhythm Method formed in 1981 with Michael Persh, Greg Apro, Davey Holmbo (a/k/a David Adamson), and Richie Lovsin. As Rhythm Method, the band played in the local area and attracted a local following. The extended play Pacquet De Cinq is their only release as Rhythm Method (later runs of the EP called the band Rhythm Corps). They played shows with The Psychedelic Furs, The Jam, Billy Idol and went on tour with fellow Detroit natives, The Romantics. They released the independent EP Espirit De Corps in 1985, which included a regional radio hit called "Vanishes". In 1988, Rhythm Corps released their debut full-length studio album, Common Ground, on Epic. The album hit # 104 on the Billboard 200 while the single "Common Ground" hit No. 9 on the Mainstream Rock charts. In 1991, they released The Future's Not What It Used to Be, which failed to duplicate Common Ground's success.
