Whatever happened to this band? I thought they had some good songs, I'm surprised they didn't keep going on. For that era, I thought they were one of the better bands.
Very coolLSD - lead singer disease.
I knew them before they were famous. I knew them before they were Fuel - they were originally Small The Joy.
After the Something Like Human album, there was a growing tension between Brett Scallions and Carl Bell. Eventually Carl left; he was the more musically-minded and cerebral. Brett was the rock star. The last I heard, Carl was living near Vegas doing film and video work as well as some production.
HA!As above, I saw them before they hit it big. They played a now closed club called Jitterbugs in the little town of Edwardsville, PA.
My friend was a bouncer there and has their demo tape.
Such a small world. I used to play with Cider every once in a while, Eric would let me plug into that Marshall full stack of his. Lyn lives down the road from me, no joke. Media 5 was a giant around here.HA!
I was at Jitterbugs ALL. THE. TIME. Lyn, the owner, was a dear friend.
BTW - the connection with Live was their booking agent. Media Five was a giant around here in the 90's. Chad Taylor from Live's dad was managing several young bands at the time. He used to call me from time to time to come to showcases - unfortunately, most of those bands were just hopping on the same train, but they weren't as good.
@TheGuildedAge - thanks for reminding me of all that. There's probably a good book in that scene. Fuel, Breaking Benjamin, The Badlees, Cider.... for a brief time, it seemed like Wilkes-Barre could be 'the new Seattle'. There was a lot of talent in that club for a few years.
Yeah but, where these bands from PA?
