Of couse, you're always welcome to drop me a line if you knew me back then. (If there's a picture of you here, and would like it removed, contact me.)

Band Meeting - Circa 1984

Steve, Jan, Robert, Myself, and someone I can't remember!

Discussing programming the keyboard. Is that a rude gesture, Steve? Hmm? More discussion with our keyboardist. Somehow I don't think we're getting much accomplished tonight... Jan, the singer. Notice the Duran Duran LP on the wall!
Doing Guitar Work w/Steve Crain - 1984

Modifying a Fender Jaguar to accept a humbucker pickup...rather stupid of us, actually! (hair dye by me!)

Steve Crain at my house, talking to his mom, with the new humbucker I installed. Steve again, restringing his guitar. Another boring night in Los Gatos. All done. One mid-1960s Fender Jaguar has been permanently altered.
Los Gatos High School Talent Show - 1984

Steve Crain, Robert Binetti, Shawn Coullahan, Corin Stigall, James Marbury, David Van Loucks and others.

The band warming up outside the show, w/Steve Crain and Robert Binetti. Steve's playing my Arbor stockless guitar! We needed two keyboardists for the song. Steve has my guitar for the show. Shawn with only half of his eye makeup on, but you gotta love the sleeveless camo top! Waiting for our turn for rehearsal. Steve's using my Arbor guitar. Steve Crain outside the show. His haircolor is my doing. Dave Van Loucks doing the stagehand stuff. He was blinded from the flash, heh... Some friends of ours who also played, Corin Stigall is on bass guitar. After the show at the local coffee shop. Coffee shops were still a rare thing in 1984, even in Los Gatos.
"Made In Italy" w/Steve Crain & Shaun Coullahan

A short-lived band, indeed. I believe the guitarist went on to play in Specimen.
