A really good band from Edmonton. Unfortunately they never released anything. The good folks at Girls from Tahiti.com have uncovered two tapes. One of the tapes is a live tape containing 14 tracks, and the second tape contains 13 practice/ rehearsal recordings, both probably from 1980. Neither were ever officially released, likely they were just made by the band or someone around at the time. The song titles are a best guess. One of the songs from the live tape (Colour TV) was on the "Only In Canada, Eh?" CD. At the end of the live set you can hear someone say that Joey Did and The Necrophiliacs are coming on next. They were also from Edmonton and they were an early version of the Malibu Kens.
