BEFORE THE CALM
1991THE MESSAGE ARRIVES...in the form of CHRIS HARLOCK, former leader of an infamous Korean street gang whose name implies such massive evil, that it cannot be printed, but whose dragon insignia adorns his sinewy biceps.While "MAD" MIKE sits connecting the dots of the snowy static picture of his television screen during a particularly successfull psychic outing, the apparition of CHRIS HARLOCK emerges, VOX PHANTOM bass in hand, and summons him to a Hollywood rehearsal hall, where he is informed the others await...
JAKE CAVALIERE, who was sprung from the Los Angeles Juvenile Detention Centre, plays Vox Dual Continental Organ, and PHIL ARRIAGADA, the master of the Vox Phantom twelve string, made up the rest of the new line-up. PHIL inherited his guitar, along with a stack of COUNT V records and warehouse located in the voodoo laden hills of Chile. Before his untimely demise, a rich relative generously stocked the warehouse with ROMILAR D, the mind altering cough sirup long since banned in America. Utilizing this miraculous medicinal aid enhanced the group's song writing abilities to the propencity that their last album, BRAINDROPS was touted as the "Sgt. Peppers of garage grunge".
