Damien asked our friend Melanie if she could rememeber more, and while some of this is already covered in that Offbeat article, most of it is not. Anything in italics is from me.
“There was a band called “Uncle Stan and Auntie Vera” which had Elizabeth Armstrong playing sax and an English guy who used to sing; i cannot remember his name. I used to go see them play. Babs (Barbara Menendez of the Cold) had another band called Apartment B, and Vance (DeGeneres, also of the Cold) had a band called The Backbeats (which turns out to have two guys from Cowboy Mouth.) I used to go see them too. There was a band that Ben’s bassist was in called The Generics which did some originals but some covers of like old Joe Jackson and other pop but sort of up stuff.
Ben and Carlo’s (Nuccio) band was “Outside Children”. Frank Asunto had a band called The Dukes at one time and then another band which my band used to play with and I cannot remember the name. You should ask Carlo (Nuccio). the Continental Drifters had group that played with Multiple Places and some national bands like “the 3 o’clocks” and some others at one of the early MTV mardi gras things at Jimmy’s. My cousin Caroline played drums and sang in Odd Fellow’s Rest at the end of the 80s and her friend Greg used to play in band that use to draw pretty well back in the days of the Rock ‘n’ Dot… ask Jack, he would remember their name too.
There was a band called the Bullets from LaPlace too that ranks as “popular” as Exit (what a joke) which is about a -.25 in a list. Exit should be removed.
Kevin from Exit played with Joe Tullis from LaPlace in a band called Big Sun in the late 80s.”
Yes. i’m still on this mad quest, but i haven’t messed with Google and these names yet.
