Information/Write-up

Slightly quirky new wave outfit leaning on the art punk side became legendary on the Toronto Queen Street club circuit playing such venues as The Crash And Burn, The Edge, Larry's Hideaway and The Beverley Tavern and art venues such as the Music Gallery. The "Electric Eye" album was one such performance recorded at the Music Gallery as the soundtrack to a full-length video production. The album is a testament to the live incorporated performance of the video's audio track.

Drummer Billy Bryans replaced Ed Boyd and recorded "How Many Fingers?" with The Government before going on perform in Mama Quilla II, The Parachute Club and other Toronto acts.

Andrew James Paterson: guitar, vocals
Robert Stewart: bass, steel drums, vocals
Edward Boyd: drums
Jeremiah Chechik: scratch guitar/percussion
Billy Bryans: drums; replaced Boyd 1981
