Stan mentioned a “Where are they now” section so I thought I would write this!
I left Rochester in 1994 and moved to Albany, NY
I got a job selling drums at the big music store here Drome Sound. Within 2 weeks of moving here I was drumming in 1313 Mockingbird Lane Albany’s garage band! While in 1313 we released 2 45’s both of which I got to sing lead on the B-side! 1 45 even had a song I had written!!!
My son was born in 1996 and I did the stay at home dad thing! Susan from Susan & The Surftones had just moved to Albany & was out the last 1313 show. She approached me and asked if I wanted to join the band. We did a few CD’s for the German Gee Dee label & a 45 for a Belgian label. We also did 3 tours of Europe while I was in the band.
The 1st was in 1997. It was 8 shows in 10 days and was only Germany.
The next tour was 2000 and was a 1 month tour that took me to Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the next tour in 2001 was also 1 month and was some of the same but also adding Denmark.
(Thank god I have an understanding wife!!!)
After those tours I try to make it to Germany at least once every 3 years. This year I went & also visited Prague, CZ.
Now I run the mail order dept. at the local record store Last Vestige ( www.lastvestige.com ).
Most of my time is spent selling records to the Russian!!!
I started Thee UMMmm… a 60’s garage band & also Das Schmucks a 3 pc Turbonegro cover band.
I also play drums and sing with The Knyghts Of Fuzz, & Big Kombo and I do a Russian WW2 re-enacting thing www.3rdriflediv.org & http://www.myspace.com/3rdriflebrigade
Looking forward to A Projectiles reunion! The Last attempt was on a day when Rochester decided to have a MAJOR snow storm!!!
