Artist: Bruno Gerussi's Medallion, Album: In Search Of The Fourth Chord, Song: Ginger's Alright

Named after a Canadian actor who played the part of Nick Adonidas, on the sitcom, The Beachcombers.  This band issued their one and only studio album in 1989 with Warner Records, entitled, In Search Of The Fourth Chord.  The album was produced by Trooper member, Ra McGuire.  The band included Jim Elliot, Bruce Faulkner, Tom Harrison, Ron Hyslop and Jimmy Walker.  Tom Harrison was a music columnist who was playing drums on the side.  He penned all the songs on this album and sang them as well.  Interesting fun fact about Tom is that he wrote for the Georgia Straight publication in Vancouver and took over for a little known writer named, Bob Geldolf, who was returning to Ireland to start the Boomtown Rats.  Bruno Gerussi's Medallion would later change their name to Little Games for one more release.  They reformed in 1998 which prompted the release of a limited live pressing.  Unfortunately, there isn't much more on the band.  Tom Harrison has a website where you can read about his time in and out of the band.  You can follow him at  You can purchase this album at  You can hear the song, Ginger's Alright, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
