No band is more strongly associated with memories of my early high school years...

In fact, two guys (the Minardi brothers) from a local Laguna band ended up as members of General Public.

Wow now I've gone on a google dive and found a picture of one of their records. The band was called "The Basics" and they played at lot of local things when I was still a bit too young to attend but they did play my 6th grade dance. http://marcoonthebass.blogspot.com/2009/11/exclusive-interview-with-mario-minardi.html

Baron,
Your post resonated with me. Did a youtube dive for bands from home town late '60s-70's.

Discovered this;
www.garage-rock-radio.com

Found recordings and videos of The Olivers form Ft Wayne, IN. Favorite local band, saw them so many times. Their music surprisingly held up

^ love that. Madonna has a knack for taking whatever's in the air and making her own likeable version of it. I've been a fan since the 80s.

on another note, feel free to officially kick me out of this thread. I've been on a George Benson tear. It's like what all jam bands really want to be but they're not cool enough— plus bell bottom suits.

Never was a fan of Dance Gavin Dance despite being a huge fan of a few of their peers. But I've been really enjoying this one. Sounds like the sequel to One Wing that The Chariot never wrote.
