If you went to Harding, check this little gem out, or even if you didn’t……BIG THANKS to Mike Phillips (guitarist and leader) for allowing me to present stuff from the band that changed my life. (LISTEN AT THE LINK BELOW- WARNING: PROFANITY)

Mike Phillips – guitar
Jimmy Wallin– bass
John Ohr- lead vocals
Steve Nelsen– drums
Roger DeBace– guitar

Mike went on to play in Sonny Vincent & The Extreme. Jimmy and Roger went on to speed things up with Willful Neglect. Steve Nelsen played drums in Shatterproof (MCA Records), The Sedgwicks, and many others.
