In 1980 I was ambling
thru the desert backwoods looking for the direction up. Ramones said hello
and I found myself with desires beyond my bedroom stage. I was in league
with Adam, Mark and Bruce in pursuit of Rock and Roll pointing north.
We actually rehearsed in a garage in the early days and eventually all
move in together in a house we called Casa Del Sublime. Everything in
Arizona is called Casa Del something. As we toiled away on our Rock and
Roll it became painfully obvious that we were two headed and going in different
directions. Bruce and I decided to go it alone. We formed thuh Advo-Cats
in the living room of that house and commenced to writin' songs. We decided
that we played a form of music called Pop-no-vat. We got our band listed
in the New Times Weekly band directory. And we soon began getting calls
and doing shows. Our intire band and equiptment fit snugly into Bruces
Toyota. Bruce played drums, I played bass and sang. I used a thick leather
glove on my left hand for effect and off we headed in to the annuls of
“I don’t remember”.
Gigs I remember: Zia
records anniversary party, Retarded adults at South Mountain Picnic, Hate
House a few times, I don’t think we ever got paid, but I could be wrong.
Thuh Advo-Cats formed in 1980, ended in 1981
